What We Do
The AmpleHarvest.org Campaign is a national effort utilizing the Internet that enables 40+ million Americans who grow food in home gardens to easily donate their excess harvest to registered local food pantries spread across all 50 states.
Why We Do It
One out of six Americans needs food assistance, but can't get fresh produce from the local food pantry, while, millions of American homeowners grow more food in their backyard gardens than they can possibly use.
It Doesn't Have to Be This Way!
AmpleHarvest.org envisions an America where millions of gardeners eliminate malnutrition and hunger in their own community using only their backyard gardens.

Students Setting An Example For The Rest of the Community.
More than 40 million gardeners across America grow fruit, vegetables, herbs and nuts in backyard, terrace, kitchen and community gardens. Some even have orchards or small farms. Many end up growing more than they can use, preserve or give to friends.
At the same time, tens of millions of Americans struggling to feed their families can't get fresh produce from the local food pantry.
It doesn't have to be this way.
If a gardener is growing more food than they can use, AmpleHarvest.org can help them find a local food pantry eager to accept it.
They can join the millions of gardeners across the country using AmpleHarvest.org to share their bounty with their neighbors in need by clicking here.
