Your Donations at Work
In 2011,more than 21 million pounds of locally grown garden produce was donated to local food pantries across all 50 states!
"Within one hour of registering Community Resource Center on the AmpleHarvest.org website I received a call from a local family of four with 10 orange trees."
- Community Resource Center Food Pantry, CA
"I can tell you how much those who utilize the food pantry enjoy the opportunity to take home some fresh produce. The turnips were flying out the door yesterday. Yes, that's right. These are the same turnips (except these are organically grown) that sit unloved in the grocery store produce section. Keep that fresh produce coming. It's good for the whole country because healthier people means less money going to the hospitals."
- Newport Food Pantry, RI
"AmpleHarvest.org has been a huge benefit to our partner agencies and has really helped getting fresh fruits to those in need."
- Feeding America of San Diego, CA
"We have been trying to find a good way to communicate to gardeners which food shelves they can donate to. I think ampleharvest.org is the missing link we have been looking for."
- Second Harvest Heartland, MN
".. [our food bank] has sent your website and produce offer out to us....I do have to say 'Hot Diggity!!'"
- LIFE Food Pantry, Loveland OH
5,970 food pantries are now registered on AmpleHarvest.org.
Registering one food pantry costs us $150* - a bargain considering the value of the fresh produce they'll receive for years to come. Please consider sponsoring the registration of one or more pantries with a donation of $150 per pantry. Lesser donations also greatly appreciated!
*There is never a charge for pantries to register with us or for gardeners or others looking for information to use our site. We are dependent solely on donations from people like you.
You can donate food or money to a food bank or food drive for an "eat once" contribution of a can or box food.
Or you can contribute to the AmpleHarvest.org Campaign to create a sustainable and recurring opportunity for local growers to share their harvest with neighborhood food pantries for many years to come.... greatly magnifying the impact of your donation.
Note: We were told by the experts that we needed a donation page with as few words as possible. This is it. If you want to see all the words you are missing, please click here.
