About The Org

Our Mission

While 42 million Americans are hungry, more than 42 million grow food in home gardens- often more than they can use.

AmpleHarvest.org helps gardeners find a local food pantry eager for their excess harvest.

Created by a CNN Hero/World Food Prize nominee, it more than 8,400 food pantries in America. Backed by Google, the USDA and many others, AmpleHarvest.org diminishes hunger, reduces climate change and improves community health. Learn more at AmpleHarvest.org/TED

What We Do

AmpleHarvest.org enables a food pantry to register its name, address, phone, and other information including an optional photo of the building to make it easy to find. It also accepts information on the days and hours gardeners' donations will be accepted. Food pantries can also list store bought items they need, helpful to users of our free Ample Harvest iPhone app.

Gardeners with extra garden produce as well as other donors simply enter their address or zip code to view all registered food pantries within the distance they are willing to travel. AmpleHarvest.org can also display a map and detailed driving instructions for the donor.

AmpleHarvest.org one of kind nonprofit and has the support of the US Department of Agriculture, Google.com, Garden Writers of America, National Gardening Association, numerous faith groups and many other organizations. Nearly one out of every five food pantries in America have already registered. AmpleHarvest.org is free of charge both for food pantries and gardeners.
