To apply, please submit a cover letter and a resume by email to Michael Binger, Regional Director – Carolinas. Applications will be received until the position is filled.

The Society of St. Andrew (SoSA) is seeking a part-time Gleaning Coordinator in the Midland South Carolina area. Society of St. Andrew is a non-profit hunger relief organization that works with farmers and packinghouses to rescue fresh fruits and vegetables that may otherwise end up as waste. With the help of our volunteers, we glean or salvage produce and distribute it to local feeding agencies.

The Gleaning Coordinator will further the mission of SoSA in a 14-county region surrounding Greenville/Spartanburg. This position is supported through the NC/SC Regional office in Durham and assumes responsibilities for various aspects of SoSA’s ministry in the local area to include:

• Maintaining relationships with current donor farmers, volunteer groups, and receiving agencies
• Recruiting farmers to allow gleaning of their produce and volunteers to participate in gleaning events
• Speaking to local groups and churches about the Gleaning Network and SoSA as needed
• Maintaining detailed records and reporting to the regional office on a regular basis

Qualifications:
The Gleaning Coordinator should be a creative and highly motivated individual with excellent organizational and communication skills. Farmers, volunteers, and supervisors all expect to have a response to their questions within the same day. Since this position is established away from the regional office, Gleaning Coordinators need to be “self-starters” in developing and carrying out program needs and objectives. Some physical labor when leading gleaning events can be expected. Travel throughout the Local Gleaning Network area should also be expected and access to a vehicle is required – employee will be reimbursed for mileage. This is a year-round position, averaging 15 hours a week (less time is needed in the winter months, but more is needed during the harvest season) and the salary is $600/month.

The Society of St. Andrew (SoSA) is a non-profit hunger relief organization which seeks to salvage nutritious food that would otherwise go to waste & distribute this food to the hungry through food banks, relief agencies, and direct distribution.
