Food Waste Quiz

1,708 views

Published on

A nationwide 501(c)(3) nonprofit hunger relief ministry, the Society of St. Andrew bridges the gap between fields and forks, mobilizing tens of thousands of volunteers each year to glean (pick, dig, or gather) fresh fruits and vegetables that are excess or unmarketable, due to cosmetic imperfections. We provide this produce free of charge to feeding agencies in the 48 contiguous states, always in quantities they can use quickly and without waste. In many cases the food we glean and distribute is served within 48 hours after harvest. We improve the quality of nutrition available to our country's poorest residents and we build capacity for thousands of partner agencies across the country. In 2012, we recovered and distributed more than 32 million pounds (96 million servings) of food. This slideshow presents our current work in Tennessee.
