Serving North Carolina and South Carolina

 Gleaning Image
In 2022, through April:
1,379,834 pounds of food gleaned and distributed
4,139,502 servings of fresh food shared
158 events held to rescue and share food
253 volunteers engaged in hands-on service
141 recipient agencies and partners

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.
