WANTED: FIELDS TO GLEAN
Gleaning America's Fields - Feeding America's Hungry.
We do it simply, effectively, and efficiently. Since 1983, Society of St. Andrew has worked to save fresh produce from America's farms - produce that would otherwise go to waste - and deliver it to hunger-relief agencies.
More than 900,000 Indiana resident sometimes don’t know where their next meal will come from, and one-third of those residents are children. Through gleaning, Indiana farmers and volunteers provide fresh, nutritious food to those who need it most.
We are currently working to build and create relationships between local farmers, volunteers and hunger relief providers to continue to help keep our neighbors fed.
It’s simple. Farmers give us a call when there is produce to donate. We reach out to volunteers and organize the logistics, transportation and training to harvest and deliver the produce to a hunger relief agency. We keep track of all the pounds donated and where there were donated. At the end of the year farmers will receive an itemized letter listing the total number of pounds for each product which can then be used for tax deduction purposes.
For more information on how, together, we can help feed hungry Hoosiers or for more information on the Federal Enhanced Tax Deduction for donated food please contact Ann Radtke at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-607-0004.
