. I love this. Food waste in the US is astronomical. By giving left over fresh ptoduce to pantries helps in so many ways. Feeds the hungry while giving them fresh food that they never get.. The nutrition is great. Saving seeds to hzve continued fresh vegetables is what is needed.
THIS nonprofit is amazing! So much growth, like a ripple in a pond. Happy to support them. Would only like to see more (free) publicity. And please disregard my first response, they FAR EXCEED my expectations! Thank you.
Ample Harvest connects gardeners with local food pantries for donating excess harvested produce. It's a great service for the community.
ample harvest is a very atypical "commercial" organization: it costs nothing for parties to join. it requires only sharing contact information online between gardeners who wish to donate excess produce and local food pantries that offer fresh vegetables and fruit to the needy, how often does one find that in this highly ceo-$-focused world?
Connecting food growers with pantries. Need more support in making even more connections to reduce waste and feed more people
They are connecting growers with hungry people, and spreading the message about food insecurity and solutions.
They successfully make it possible and easy for producers and recipients to help each other. Excess produce to those in need while it's fresh.
Ample Harvest is an amazing concept turned into a very successful way to help those who need help with healthy eating for the neediest.
Helping to reduce food waste and bring healthy produce to feed those less fortunate. More food banks to accept these type of donations in South Florida where the growing season is during the winter.
I can't offer improvements but positively it is one of the few resources that addresses peoples nutritional needs while also providing much needed food. Healthy option!
With the recent news of the dangers of climate change it's more important than ever to make sure everyone gets the sustenance they deserve. AmpleHarvest.Org is leading the way to a better planet.
One of the best solutions to food insecurity, leveraging gardeners, to increase both the quantity and quality of the nutrition in our local communities. I took advantage of the great research of AmpleHarvest.org to find a local food pantry to donate my excess produce, and I've been donating ever since. I've also developed a deeper connection to this food pantry. It's a great non-profit, and if you're a gardener or a food pantry, check it out.
Reducing food loss across America in a way no other program does. Great example for other nonprofits. Needs more exposure.
Doing amazing work to get freshly harvested food to 1000's of food pantries. Every $ I donate worthwhile. Gamechanger solution to hunger
AmpleHarvest.org is eliminating food waste by connecting gardeners to food pantries desperately in need of fresh food. The impact is immense.
Ample Harvest is doing the essential work of bring together local growers with local food pantries to 1. eliminate waste; 2. end hunger; 3. grow resilient communities. There are a great many organisations working to address hunger in America, but Ample Harvest takes a systems approach that creates the essential conditions for long-term change in a way that no other organisation in the field does. I am proud to support Ample Harvest, and encourage everyone with an interest in being of service to check out their model, and support them in whatever way they can.
AmpleHarvest.org is a unique organization solving a problem that few are paying attention to ie getting the excess fresh produce form 42 million gardeners to hungry Americans. They operate extremely efficiently and are completely dedicated to their mission of reducing food waste and ending hunger in the US.
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!
