Serving North Carolina and South Carolina

Since the Society of St. Andrew was created in 1979, more than 169 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 has resulted in over 500 million servings of food being delivered to our neighbors in need.

Since 1992, the Society of St. Andrew has operated 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.

It was a great day to visit Harmony, NC, first to present Brian Howard of Howard Family Farm with a 2017 Feeding the Carolinas certificate for the 49,818 servings of beautiful corn, tomatoes and other produce he donated last year.  Its exciting to see the strawberries forming in the fields.  Plus we got to tour the new home for Matthew 25 Ministries in Harmony.  Lots more room for produce!Image attachmentImage attachment
