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.”
 

November Gleaning @ AllenBrooke farms in Spring Hill

~This is a Certified Organic CSA farm in Spring Hill.  After the last CSA Week of their season last year they offered all that was left in their fields to the Society of St. Andrew.  We joined them and picked overflowing rows of broccoli, kale, kohlrabi, turnips and more and transported dozens of huge yard bags full of food at the Nashville Food Project.  The farmers have planted this year specifically for SOSA and we have added gleaning at this beautiful farm to our yearly line up.  We meet on the property at 9:00 a.m.  2023 Dr Robertson Rd, Spring Hill, TN 37174
