Society of St. Andrew
August 11, 2014

Having served on SoSA's board for multiple terms since its inception in 1979, I can vouch for the effectiveness of this exemplary organization. The audacious goal of ending hunger in this country just may be possible if more persons provide surplus food and help glean it, donate the funds necessary to bag and transport that fresh food to hungry people, and encourage young people to both learn about and do something about hunger through Harvest of Hope experiences. The obscenity of hunger in a land of plenty CAN be dealt with with your help, that I know.

spread the word more widely about the reality of hunger so as to generate more fiscal, verbal and physical support

Society of St. Andrew

It has been my pleasure to have observed the Society of Saint Andrew closely since it began in 1979, having lived in the area where it is located, being a member of the denomination that launched it, and serving on the board multiple times. Unfortunately the problem of hunger in this nation has not abated. But fortunately SoSA has honed in on addressing it in very practical ways through gleaning food with volunteer labor and getting fresh food immediately to hungry persons. The program has grown in scope and influence, expanding across the country beyond its East Coast origins. Its low cost, practical solution to solving the problems of food waste, answer to the need for fresh food, and provision of opportunity for meaningful involvement by those concerned about the Christian imperative of feeding the hungry all combine in a program meriting wide support.
