The AmpleHarvest Mobile App

This app is essential for gardeners who have a bountiful harvest, and end up with more of a crop than they need.  Instead of letting your crop go to waste, check the ample harvest app for a list of food banks and pantries that give food to those in need.  You can also check to see what is needed at these pantries and food banks, to insure that your surplus of produce is donated to those who have the greatest need for these items.  This app will help you reduce the amount of food that would have been otherwise thrown away.

The Light Bulb Finder App
