Soc St. Andrew – Gleaning


Jim Hassmer



Gleaning at the Saturday Market: The Society of Saint Andrew team brings buckets to the market to collect donations of produce and foodstuffs from vendors that they distribute to shelters and facilities in the Charlottesville Area. Over 5000 pounds of food was collected in 2015 Market Season!

Gleaning in Virginia

The national headquarters for the Society of St. Andrew is in Big Island – near Lynchburg, Virginia. This office coordinates all the ministries of the organization, and oversees the regional offices in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Tennessee. The Big Island office also serves as the regional office for our Virginia operations.

The Society of St. Andrew has delivered more than 104 million pounds of salvaged potatoes and other food to the needy in Virginia through the Gleaning Network and the Potato & Produce Project. This has resulted in approximately 312 million servings of food going to Virginia’s hungry.

The Society of St. Andrew operates a statewide, volunteer-driven Gleaning Network in Virginia that coordinates with local farmers, thousands of volunteers, and food-providing agencies.

Through the Virginia Gleaning Network, each year we coordinate thousands of volunteers in six local areas who enter fields after farmers have finished harvesting and simply pick up the tons of edible produce left behind. Our volunteers represent groups from various church denominations, synagogues, youth groups, other civic organizations, and inner city residents. We annually glean over a million pounds of a wide variety of produce in Virginia. Please join us in this exciting hands-on ministry.

We can arrange gleanings based on any desired date! Contact us about the date you want.

Most gleaning events take place on weekends where gleaners arrive in the fields around 8am and are on their way home by noon. Society of St. Andrew makes all arrangements with farmers, produce containers and food distribution. All that volunteer gleaners need to do is show up. Volunteer groups are encouraged to take food back to agencies or programs that they support in their local area.

People of all ages can glean. Gleaners should be able to bend over and should be able to bend and lift several pounds of produce.

It is important that the contact person be reachable by phone during day-time hours.

Most of our gleanings are in the morning and last three to four hours. Gleanings are scheduled week days and on Saturdays.

If you have questions about when local crops are available, we would be happy to help.

Vendor Operated Site


Sponsored by The City of Charlottesville Parks and Recreation -The Charlottesville City market is a producer only market of farmers, food vendors, crafts, and artisans – The Charlottesville City Market is held every Saturday from 7:00am till Noon from April through December Downtown Charlottesville at Water Street and South Street between 1st and 2nd.

After the Market Meeting February 20 2016, we decided to revive the vendor operated site since the vendors wanted to be able to manage an informative site about the market and it vendors. The City officials at the meeting said many other organizations maintain external sites to promote more specific and detailed information about their organization. So here we are – we will try to find ways to support the cost of hosting and maintaining this site and make it more accessible and editable by the vendors themselves.

Our sincere hope is to have vendors able to post and edit information about their products and presence at the market as easily and as often as they feel necessary. The process of providing a protected and secure membership system so that vendors will have access to their personal and business posts will take a bit of technical work. We want to provide the most cost effective and secure platform for our fellow vendors, prevent spam and keep the site safe and secure. Vendors will have a membership process to sign up and will then be given special credentials and password to login to this site to post their data on their information page.

We are longtime vendors ourselves and have been hosting and registering this web presence for over 15 years absorbing the total cost and labor effort. For some reason a couple of years back we were asked to disable the site so the city could provide their new web presence. We did so but after this 2016 meeting the vendors overwhelmingly wanted more than the city site and many asked me personally to revitalize and reactivate this site.

So here we go!
