How is the Society of St. Andrew different from my local food bank?

The Society of St. Andrew provides fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables to food banks (and other organizations that serve those in need) across the U.S. at no cost to them, enabling these organizations to stretch their already-tight budgets. We do not charge recipient organizations handling fees for the food we provide, and ask that they don’t charge fees for the food we provide them. We are an ecumenical ministry that recognizes the spiritual dimension of helping others and provide spiritual growth materials to those interested. The food we rescue and deliver to recipient agencies would often otherwise end up in landfills. Our efforts therefore have a positive environmental effect.
