Serving North Carolina and South Carolina

 Gleaning Image

In 2019, through June, our Carolinas region has gleaned 1,506,618 pounds of fresh produce in 326 events, with 2,041 volunteers.

Food donated by 90 farmers has been distributed to hungry people through 231 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.

About 20 gleaners from the Charlotte and Triad areas pulled more than 8,000 pounds of beautiful Silver Queen corn at Howard Family Farm near Harmony, NC this morning.  The field really heated up by quitting time, but all the trucks were filled and sent on their way to feed hungry neighbors across the region!  Thanks, Howard Family Farm!Image attachmentImage attachment
