Feed My Sheep, Part 2

Getting Involved In Helping To Feed Others

Return to Episode: Feed My Sheep, Part 2

The Society of St. Andrew is a gleaning organization. Gleaners go through commercial fields post-harvest to recover perfectly good food that’s been left behind — often up to 40% of a crop! We talked with some SOSA volunteers and their hosts for the day, Smith Farms, about why they get involved. With almost half the produce grown in America remaining in fields after harvest, we have a long way to go towards taming food waste — and hunger. But people like these show us what’s possible.
