The USA produces enough food to feed all its people yet many Americans are chronically hungry.
Making it easy for millions of gardeners to effectively channel their excess produce to food pantries is an elegant, low cost solution to the problem of getting nutritious fresh food into the hands of those most in need.
Great work Ampleharvest.org!
Helping make durable connections between those with excess food and those in need of it; with little infrastructure cost
AmpleHarvest.org operates a tech platform to eliminate food waste by linking food pantries and gardeners with excess produce. It's a highly efficient way to match hungry people with nutritious food and an important tool in battling food insecurity in the US.
AmpleHarvest has done a great job of making it easy to find where to donate my excess garden produce. I wish they could tell more people what they do.
Ending food waste, hunger & helping enviro nationwide. Most effective program of its kind. Brilliant!
Innovative approach to reducing food waste. Making a significant impact to provide fresh food to reduce poverty and alleviate starvation.
The amazing work this organization does is changing our food system.
Most other charities spend their time and energy (and money) trying to respond to problems - over and over which is all well and good, but AmpleHarvest.org actually works to fix the system that is creating the problems in the first place.
Instead of buying food and feeding people, AmpleHarvest.org works to help America use the fresh food it already has first. Why didn't anyone think of that before?
My donation is spent on fixing a broken system and not just patching it. I'm paying for technology and talent to fix the system but not for food! Wow!
Been donating every year since AmpleHarvest.org started - thrilled to see its growth, impact and energy. It's been money very well spent.
After retirement I was in search of a new way to give back to the world. When I heard the AmpleHarvest.org story and mission, I knew this was the non-profit I wanted add to my list of charities to support. I think everyone in America is aware of how much fresh food we waste amidst the problem of people of millions being food insecure. AmpleHarvest.org is working hard to change that scenario. Please check out their website and read more about the ingenious way AmpleHarvest.org connects gardeners to local food pantries to end hunger and malnutrition. They have my solid vote for No Food Left Behind.
I find AmpleHarvest.org to be a wonderful, free resource for both gardeners and food pantries! It affords gardeners an opportunity to donate their extra vegetables that would have otherwise been wasted and it helps pantries get much need fresh produce to their clients. It's a win-win for everyone!
