We aim to be good neighbors and citizens and to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. From the cloud to the ground, iCorps has partnered with AmpleHarvest.org to put garden-fresh produce into the hands of those families who cannot afford it. iCrops is more than just a typo - it's a promise to embody our philosophy to the fullest. When you donate to iCrops, you create a sustainable and recurring opportunity for gardeners to share their harvest with local food pantries.
The iCrops initiative is meant to help put garden-fresh produce into the hands of those families and individuals who cannot afford it. The money raised by iCrops is sent directly to our partner AmpleHarvest.org, a nonprofit dedicated to eliminating food waste and providing fresh produce to those who would not normally have access to it. This partnership allows for the garden-fresh produce that would typically be wasted to be served at a table the same day a donation is made.
AmpleHarvest.org is a unique nationwide resource that is eliminating the waste of food, the outcome being a reduction in hunger and malnutrition along with an improved environment. It is accomplished by utilizing the Internet to enable 42 million Americans who grow food in home/community gardens to easily donate their excess harvest to one of 8,386 registered local food pantries spread across all 50 states. These food pantries help nourish the one out of six Americans (including a quarter of all kids under six) that rely on these pantries.
