Serving North Carolina and South Carolina

 Gleaning Image

In 2020, through February, our Carolinas region has gleaned 508,348 pounds of fresh produce in 147 events, with 689 volunteers.

Food donated by 37 farmers has been distributed to hungry people through 161 feeding agencies.

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.

Even though many places are closed, people still need to eat.  Now more than ever, actually.  We are grateful to WP Rawl in Pelion, SC for sharing two HUGE pallets of already washed and bagged collards with Society of St. Andrew.  Those beautiful greens went straight from their farm to our hungry South Carolina neighbors. Thats a true blessing as people struggle with the effects of the Coronavirus!
