In partnership with the Society of St. Andrew, the Wesley Foundation will be hosting a massive Potato Drop event where we will package 40,000 lbs of potatoes that will be delivered and donated to ministries and non-profits all over Atlanta.
Since 1983, the Society of St. Andrew has salvaged fresh, nutritious produce from American farms – produce that otherwise would be left to rot – and delivered it to agencies across the nation that serve the poor. The Society of St. Andrew has delivered more than 15 million pounds of salvaged potatoes and other produce to the needy in the state of Georgia through the Potato and Produce Project. This has resulted in approximately 45 million servings of food going to Georgia’s hungry.
We hope you will join us in assisting Society of St. Andrew with their mission and donate just an hour or two of your time to this meaningful work. So grab your friends, your classmates, your coworkers, your hallmates, and head over to Tenth Street Underwood Memorial UMC to lend a helping hand!
