Updating or Revising Your Information
If you ever need to revise your pantry information, log back into your account a make any changes you need.
- Click “Pantry Login” in the top right corner of the page and enter your username/email and your password.
- If you forgot your password, click on “Forgot your password?”. A new window appears asking for your username or email address. The username or email address you enter must match the username or email address you used when your pantry was registered. You will receive an email with instructions on how to reset your password.
- Once your pantry information is displayed, you may make the desired changes.
The Street Address field should contain ONLY the street address of the pantry – no P.O. Box numbers, no floor numbers, etc. All words should be spelled out. AmpleHarvest.org uses Google Maps to help gardeners locate your pantry. If Google Maps does not recognize your address, it will not process properly. If you are in doubt, go to http://maps.google.com/ and enter your street address followed by your zip code (i.e. 123 Main Street 10024). If Google Maps shows your location properly, enter it into AmpleHarvest.org. Otherwise, try testing a variation of your address. For example, if 10 2nd Av does not work, try 10 Second Ave instead.
Always include your area code with your telephone number and fax number.
Uploading an outside photograph of your food pantry is a great way to help gardeners find your building when they come to make a donation. The photograph must be a JPEG file no larger than 1000 pixels by 1000 pixels. Click here to see an example of a food pantries photograph.
You can use the Additional Information field to tell more about your pantry. Many food pantries use this field to list store bought items they urgently need.
Come back to update this information as often as you like. This is the best way to keep your community informed about your pantries particular needs. Don’t forget to press “Update” to complete the changes.
Make sure that you keep all of your information up to date. If the name, address, phone number or any other information about the pantry changes, update the information on AmpleHarvest.org too. Accurate, up-to-date information is important if you want donors to reach you.
You can invite another food pantry to learn about AmpleHarvest.org by entering their email address under the “Refer A Pantry” section and pressing “Refer”.
