Organization Information

Mission Statement

The Society of St. Andrew brings people together to harvest and share healthy food, reduce food waste, and build caring communities by offering nourishment to hungry neighbors.

Description

Since January 2018, the Society of St. Andrew has operated a statewide, volunteer-driven Gleaning Network in Indiana that coordinates with local farmers, thousands of volunteers, and food providing agencies. Our Indiana Gleaning Network will multiply the amount of fresh produce we can provide to the hungry in the state each year. Please join us in this exciting hands-on ministry.

Please contact us to indicate your interest in gleaning. When we have opportunities within 30-45 minutes of your location, we will email you with details and invite you to join us in the fields. Most gleaning events take place on weekends where gleaners arrive in the fields around 8am and are on their way home by noon. Society of St. Andrew makes all arrangements with farmers, produce containers and food distribution. All that volunteer gleaners need to do is show up. Volunteer groups are encouraged to take food back to agencies or programs that they support in their local area.

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.

It is important that the contact person be reachable by phone during day-time hours.

Most of our gleanings are in the morning and last three to four hours. Gleanings are scheduled week days and on Saturdays.
