Society of St. Andrew has delivered more
pounds of salvaged
potatoes and other food to the needy in
Mississippi through our Potato and
Produce Project. This has resulted in
almost 30 million servings of food going
to Mississippi's hungry.
The Society of St. Andrew
operates a volunteer-driven Gleaning
Network in Mississippi that includes
volunteers who save fresh produce every
year and use it to feed hungry people
all across the state.
Through the Mississippi Gleaning
Network, we coordinate volunteers in
many areas of the state who actually
enter fields 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, other civic organizations,
individuals, and inner city residents.
