The Society of St. Andrew (SoSA) seeks a part-time Gleaning Coordinator for our Triangle NC region. SoSA is a non-profit hunger relief organization that works with farmers, volunteers and packinghouses to rescue fresh produce that may otherwise end up as waste, and distribute it to local feeding agencies. This position is supported by the NC Regional office in Durham and assumes responsibility for various aspects of SoSA’s ministry in the local area, including:

• Recruiting farmers to allow gleaning of their produce, and volunteers to participate in gleaning events
• Speaking to local groups and churches about the Gleaning Network and SoSA
• Maintaining detailed records and reporting to the regional office on a regular basis
