Yam Jam 2022 (October 1st – November 5th)
SoSA’s Annual Sweet Potato Field Gleaning Series
There are limited spots at each of SoSA’s 2022 Yam Jam Gleaning Events. Use the button below to view the calendar of events and sign up today while space is available.
Yam Jam is The Society of St. Andrew’s annual sweet potato gleaning, spanning 6 weekends across September and October. Last year, more than 1,000 volunteers gleaned and then shared more than 300,000 pounds of sweet potatoes across Central North Carolina!
We glean and harvest sweet potatoes that would be left field without the help of generous volunteers like you!
Every sweet potato picked goes directly to local feeding agencies to be given away to neighbors who need it. If you are interested in helping us distribute sweet potatoes during Yam Jam, please indicate that on your registration. This year, we are hoping to glean more than ever to provide for our neighbors in need.
We will glean at First Fruits Farm on November 5! This is Jason and Tay Brown’s farm in Louisburg, where they grow sweet potatoes to donate to feeding agencies. Sign up on the volunteer calendar while there’s still room.
Once you register, watch for two emails: one with general information on Tuesday before your Saturday gleaning, and another on Friday before your gleaning with the exact field location.
Please note: we will not know the exact field locations until the week of each event!
