About

Since the Society of St. Andrew was created in 1979, more than 45 million pounds of fresh produce have reached our state’s people in need. This has been accomplished through the Gleaning Network and the Potato and Produce Project and has resulted in about 135 million servings of food being delivered to our neighbors in need.

Through the Florida Gleaning Network, we coordinate volunteers across the state who actually enter fields and groves 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, corporate and civic organizations, individuals, and inner city residents.

People of all ages can glean. Gleaners should be able to bend over and should be able to bend and lift several pounds of produce.

Most of our gleanings are in the morning and last three to four hours. Gleanings are scheduled week days and on Saturdays. You can sign up as an individual or as a group.
