AmpleHarvest.org, the Web site that allows gardeners to find local food pantries where they can donate extra garden goods, now has a new way for growers and pantries to connect.Gary Oppenheimer, founder of the nonprofit organization, announced recently a free iPhone application from Apple's iPhone Application Store is available to allow interested parties to reach their Web site by iPhone.

The new application uses the phone's built-in GPS system to show a map marking all the registered food pantries in the area.

Once the user selects a pantry, the application will give detailed directions, operating hours and will connect the user with the pantry's Web site, if one exists.

AmpleHarvest.org is a program of Sustainable West Milford, a nonprofit organization, and began offering the service in spring 2009.

The new service was funded by a special contribution from the Good People Fund and through services donated by Stoneraven Media.

The Ample Harvest iPhone application is available from a link at www.ampleharvest.org/iphonephp or directly from Apple's iPhone Application Store.
