Mission Statement

The vision of the Society of St. Andrew is a world in which physical and spritual hungers are met through God's grace and abundance. The mission of the Society of St. Andrew is to introduce people to God's grace in Jesus Christ through meeting their hungers:

  • Food for the body
  • God's word for the spirit
  • Cummunity for those who desire action

Let us love not only in words, but in deed and in truth. 1st John 3:18

Description

This is a non-denominational, nonprofit, nationwide, grass-roots hunger-relief organization. Society of St. Andrew (SoSA) salvages perfectly good graded-out or excess produce to feed people in need. We glean fields and orchards, pick up excess from farmer's markets and farms, and take this free, fresh, nutritious produce to local food pantries.

Through the Potato Project, growers donate tractor-trailer loads of nutritiious produce that cannot be sold for cosmetic reasons.

Through the Harvest of Hope program, people are educated about the hunger problem and encouraged to make lifelong commitments to being part of the solution, such as returning to their communities and planting gardens for food pantries.
