Serving North Carolina

and South Carolina


Since 1992, when the Society of St. Andrew opened a North Carolina regional office, more than 143 million pounds of fresh produce have reached people in need in North Carolina and South Carolina. This has been accomplished through the Gleaning Network, Potato and Produce, and Seed Potato Project and has resulted in over 429 million servings of food being delivered to our neighbors in need.


The Society of St. Andrew operates a statewide, volunteer-driven Gleaning Network that coordinates with local farmers, thousands of volunteers, and food providing agencies. Our North Carolina Gleaning Network is going strong, salvaging over five million pounds of fresh produce for the hungry each year. In this agriculturally diverse state, gleaners work to salvage everything from strawberries to sweet potatoes to collard greens.


Through the North Carolina Gleaning Network, we coordinate volunteers across the state who actually enter fields under after farmers have finished harvesting and simply pick up the tons of good produce left behind. Our volunteers represent groups from various church denominations, synagogues, youth groups, other civic organizations, individuals, and inner city residents.
