AmpleHarvest.org helps millions of backyard gardeners easily find a local food pantry to donate their extra garden produce to.
If you have come to this site because you are in need of food assistance for your family, you may try the Find A Pantry above to look for a local food pantry.
If you are unable to find one in your community, you should call the National Hunger Hotline 1-800-5HUNGRY (1-800-548-6479) refers people in need anywhere in the U.S. to food pantries, soup kitchens, government programs, and model grassroots organizations.
WhyHunger's National Hunger Hotline offers:
If WhyHunger helps you find a food pantry (or closet or shelf or bank or cupboard), help it get you locally grown fresh garden produce by printing the flier at www.AmpleHarvest.org/pantry and give it to the pantry manager. Urge them to register their food pantry at www.AmpleHarvest.org as soon as possible. Remind them it is free!
