Since opening a regional office in Indianapolis, in January 2018, The Society of St. Andrew has operated a statewide, volunteer-driven Gleaning Network in Indiana that coordinates with local farmers, thousands of volunteers, and hunger relief agencies. SoSA’s Indiana Gleaning Network multiplies the amount of fresh produce available to share with hungry families, across the state each year.

Gleaning farm fields in Indiana with Society of St AndrewPlease get in touch with us to indicate your interest in gleaning. When we have opportunities within 30-45 minutes of your location, we will email you with details and invite you to join us in the fields. Gleaning events and times vary and usually come up last minute, but last around 2 hours. The Society of St. Andrew makes all arrangements with farmers and for food distribution.

All that volunteer gleaners need to do is show up. People of all ages can glean.
Gleaners should be able to bend over and should be able to bend and lift several pounds of produce. Volunteer groups are encouraged to take food back to agencies or programs that they support in their local area.

SoSA welcomes volunteers of all abilities.
Please reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator if you would like to volunteer in another capacity. We may have administrative tasks or other opportunities that can be done outside of the fields.

SoSA’s volunteers represent groups from various church denominations, synagogues, youth groups, retirees, corporate and civic organizations, rural and inner-city residents, and other service-minded individuals. All are welcome!
