Your donation provides hungry people access to fresh, nutritious produce – something they can’t easily afford, but desperately need to ensure their health and well-being. Thank you for being supportive of the mission to end hunger and prevent food waste!
Donate by Credit/Debit Card
Donate with confidence using the secure, online donation form. You can make it a one-time gift or select recurring to make periodic donations. When you select recurring, determine the frequency that best suits your goals.
Would you like to designate your gift in memory of someone special? Or in honor of a special occasion? Check the “I would like to dedicate this donation” box and provide additional information.
Every 3¢ donated provides 1 serving of food. That means a $1 donation provides 35 servings of food for a family in need.
Make It A Monthly Gift
Interested in a smaller, recurring, monthly donation to share good food every month?
A $12 donation is enough to feed a family their recommended servings of fruits and veggies for an entire month.
For every $1 you put into the mission to end hunger, 96¢ goes directly into rescuing food and delivering it to communities and families who need it the most.

How Your Donations Are Used
The largest expense in the mission is appropriate packaging and safe transportation from the farm fields to the dinner plates.
This is just one of the many reasons we try to keep the food as local as possible. Often, food is delivered to families within 24 hours of being harvested or gleaned from the fields. It doesn’t get much fresher than that!

Donate While You Shop
Enroll your Kroger Card in the “Kroger Community Rewards” Program. Visit the Community Rewards website, find your state and select the store you visit the most. Choose “The Society of St. Andrew, Inc.” as your organization to support and every time you shop, Kroger will donate a portion of your order total to the mission to end hunger.
Kroger donates annually to participating organizations— like SoSA— based on your percentage of spending as it relates to the total spending associated with all participating Kroger Community Rewards organizations.
Your orders will begin automatically rounding up to the nearest dollar at checkout— and 100% of that spare change will be sent to SoSA, on your behalf. Your donations will share good food where it’s needed most.

How the Story of the 12 Baskets is Connected to SoSA’s Name
But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!” They said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.” And He said, “Bring them here to Me.” Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds, and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets. There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.
2 Kings 4:42-44
[…]the man of God […] said, “Give them to the people that they may eat.” His attendant said, “What, will I set this before a hundred men?” But he said, “Give them to the people that they may eat, for thus says the Lord, ‘They shall eat and have some left over.’” So he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the Lord.
