Serving North Carolina and South Carolina

 Gleaning Image

In 2020, through October, our Carolinas region has gleaned 6,884,926 pounds of fresh produce in 997 events, with 4,847 volunteers.

Food donated by 123 farmers has been distributed to hungry people through 385 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.

We have the best volunteers!  Phyllis and Edna come regularly to our Charlotte-area gleanings, bringing thousands of pounds of food back to seniors in their community each year!  Their SUV is packed on Monday with glorious greens from Riverbend Farms in Cabarrrus County!
