A big Thank You to the congregation for their help with the Easter Children’s Celebration.  A great time was had by all.  All help was deeply appreciated.

Your gifts to the Society of St. Andrew continue to help us move truckloads of fresh good around the state for distribution to those in need.  We greatly appreciate your partnership as we work to find food going to waster and feed those who are going hungry.

We are excited to see spring coming.  We have found new farmers to reach out to and therefore new opportunities for moving fresh foods to hungry people.  And soon we will be planning gardens, gleaning farmers’  markets and providing healthy food to hungry people.

Because we can make food available at only two cents per serving, your Advance Special gift will put 12,500 servings of food on the plates of people in need in Tennessee.  Amazing!

Thank you for choosing to be part of the Society of St. Andrew’s ministry.  We need your prayers for our hungry brothers and sisters and your voice, as you tell your friends what you are doing through the Society of St. Andrew to alleviate hunger.
