Every year, youth groups and people of all ages take part in our work/study mission trip programs in many states, learning about hunger and poverty, gleaning in fields, and working in food pantries and soup kitchens.
In June 2019, SoSA Executive Director Lynette Johnson and Church Relations Director Chesley Vohden were interviewed by iHeart Radio in Lynchburg, Virginia. Learn about SoSA’s history, crop drops, food insecurity, volunteering, and our feeding programs. Runs 28:51.
SoSA partners with faith groups, secular groups, schools, and individuals, that we might all serve together by feeding the hungry out of the abundance that we are provided.

Volunteering with the Society of St. Andrew for the past 8 years has been wonderful. It is amazing to see the difference being made by this organization. They are starting in our local communities and changing the world!–Ashley J.
For three decades now, I have personally supported this organization. Doesn’t it make all the sense in the world to save good food that would otherwise be thrown away, and take it to hungry people? There’s no reason for hunger in the USA. There IS enough food for everyone. The challenge is to distribute it. And that’s what they do.–jdevine18
We at South Austin Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) financially support Society of St. Andrew. We enjoy the uplifting devotionals they give to us at no cost for participating in their seasonal programs. We are looking forward in giving to this worthy cause again!–South Austin Christian Church
I have enjoyed working with SOSA for about two years now to feed the hungry in our community. The SoSA volunteers are always kind, gracious, and so appreciative of the help we can offer. I have been blessed by the opportunity to with with them.–Bosmom
Volunteering with SoSA has truly been a blessing. They unselfishly give of their time and talents to help the hungry. If they could see the tears of joy that falls from the faces of senior citizens, widows, hospice, and the working poor, who needed food but did not have the means to purchase any, yet the SOSA team is in action freely distributing food.–tidewatergleaning
Gleaning events are hands-on and inter-generational, and the Harvest of Hope programs are longer sessions which include spiritual and educational components. I love the annual Christmas “donor cards” with their unique and inspirational art. I always look for ways to promote and support SoSA.–jasnc

A wonderful organization! Their concept of harvesting fresh, perfectly good, nutritious food that would otherwise go to waste is awesome. I participated in a gleaning weekend a few years ago and loved it. Have been a regular supporter since.–Marde
SoSA is one of the best charities that we, as a family, have volunteered in. The organizers are extremely personable and down to earth people. Children are not only accommodated, but their participation is valued.–Taskeen
