In a world of excess and waste, the Society of St. Andrew works to repurpose food that would have gone to waste and provide nutrition for people in need. We all have much to give, let's not waste perfectly good food.
I found out about the Society of St. Andrew looking online for free Vacation Bible School materials. I was so excited to find materials that were very well organized and supported a charity right here within the United States. Since that time, we have used both years of their VBS materials and have continued to periodically take up a collection to send them as we use their free materials for Advent and Lent seasons. They are very open and honest about where the donations go and offer many opportunities for gleaning and helping others right here at home. I love that!
Our church uses the Society of St. Andrew's materials for advent and for lent, plus we held a church-wide Bible school for two years, using their free curriculum. We follow their September Hunger Action Month calendar as well. SoSA has the right idea - don't let anything go to waste! I think this organization is one of the top non-profits in our country and hope they will be able to continue their work in the future. They are a valuable resource and in addition, use their resources wisely. I am proud to be a supporter of SoSA.
Society of St. Andrew does some wonderful work. All of this work is done while using only a small percentage of their money for administration.
Great charity that fights hunger by gleaning unharvested food from farmers. Please donate to this wonderful organization! :-)
The Society of St. Andrew has helped feed thousands of people who would otherwise go hungry. Time and time again SofSA reaches out to those in need. God bless the Society of St. Andrew.
love that SoSA helps with the basic needs of people....supplying food.
SoSA has been gleaning fields of fresh produce for many years to help feed the hungry. They utilize many volunteers from all over the Mid Atlantic. They provide more food to local Food Banks and other sources of distribution than any other organization that I know. They also provide devotional materials to anyone who wants to participate in prayer and spiritual time. They are a wonderful organization for feeding the less fortunate.
SoSA's results-based work have consistently and repeatedly earned my trust & admiration. This is faith in action, in all of the very best, most human and caring definitions of that phrase. Well managed and participation oriented, SoSA offers ordinary, busy people a simple, wholesome work experience opportunity within the context of doing good unto others: helping to feed them. What a great concept. Thanks, cheers and blessings to SoSA!
I appreciate SoSA as an organization that takes their mission to love people through and to Christ by meeting their physical needs. "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." ~ James 1:27
I use SoSA devotional materias each year for my church's spiritual growth. I have always received great feedback from the members because these devotions are so meaningful. Each time I volunteer at a potato drop, talk with SoSA staff, or highlight SoSA in my church; I have a positive experience with people who ae committed to helping in any way they can. I have complete confidence in the integrity of this ministry with thse who can help meet the needs of the hungry.
Society of St Andrew is a wonderful organization in that it takes food that would oherwise go to waste and uses this gleaned food to feed the hungry. I have helped on numerous potato drops, cabbage drop and gleaning for apples in the orchard. All of these events have been well organized and well attended. It's amazing to me to see how much food is wasted if not for Society of St. Andrew.
I began supporting The Society of St. Andrew when it was first established. I lived in Virginia at the time & had a representative come & share the mission with our church. We have been supporters since that time. They do a fantastic job in gleaning & helping feed the hungry of our county. Karen Coffman
I am a gleaner. I talked to a frien of mine to help glean. After two weeks (I wore him down) he agreed to help. We gleaned in the morning and delivered in the afternoon. At the end of the day he asked, "Why aren't more people doing this?" I reminded him it only took two weeks to convince him. We had a good laugh and planned the next gleaning.
