Society of st. Andrew

“Since 1983, the Society of St. Andrew has salvaged fresh, nutritious produce from American farms – produce that otherwise would be left to rot – and delivered it to agencies across the nation that serve the poor.
God has called us to do this work. In Deuteronomy 15, it says, "Since there will never cease to be some in need on the Earth, I therefore command you, ‘Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in your land.’
Gleaning America’s Fields ~ Feeding America’s Hungry. That is what the Society of St. Andrew does. "We do it simply, and we do it more effectively and far more efficiently than any other hunger relief organization.”

October Gleaning at Green Door Gourmet

Join us for our October 2NDSAT on Saturday, October 10! We will meet at Green Door Gourmet to glean Bell Peppers with the Society of St. Andrew. Volunteers should arrive at 9 am and park by the event barn. We'll walk down to the warehouse and fields together. Maybe a tenth of a mile or so. The group will be capped at 15 people, and we ask that volunteers wear a mask at all times unless they are further than 10 feet away from anyone not part of their household. Wear clothes and shoes you wouldn't mind getting dirty. And bring work/garden gloves. For your safety, we ask that anyone with underlying health conditions wait to participate in a different mission project. Join us in gleaning extra food from the farm so it can be shared with those who are hungry! 


Sign up via VolunteerLocal:

Each participant will need to create a profile with SoSA's VolunteerLocal site by going to endhunger.volunteerlocal.com/volunteer/?id=47844. From there, they'll be prompted to sign up by entering their first name and email. That will take them to the next page where they will fill out a registration waiver.


The FPC October 10th event is password protected so that only FPC congregants can see it. There will be a field at the top that says, "Have a password? Enter it here:" The password for this event is fpcfranklin. When that is submitted, they should be able to see the event for October 10th and sign up for it.


If a family wants to sign up multiple members of the family, the best option is to submit separate registrations. Parents will register as normal. Then, when signing up for a child, they'll go through the same process as they did at the beginning and parents can use the parent email for the email field, but just use their child's first name in the "first name" field when signing the child up. They will proceed as normal after that with the password and signing up for the event.


If you have questions or any difficulty registering, email mission@fpcfranklin.org
