The Society of St. Andrew (SoSA) is asking United Methodists and UM churches to help the organization win a $250,000 prize being offered by Pepsi.
This month the food conglomerate will grant 1.3 million dollars to fund ideas that will refresh the world. "Society of St. Andrew's approach to feeding the hungry will certainly refresh the world of those in need," according to a SoSA news release. "You can help us feed the hungry by voting every day in September for the Society of St. Andrew in the Food and Shelter/$250,000 category. Your vote can help provide 9 million servings of food to hungry Americans!"
The Society of St. Andrew is a national, faith-based, ecumenical, nonprofit organization that gleans America's fields and feeds America's hungry. It effectively tackles the problem of hunger in America through its grassroots Gleaning Network, Potato & Produce Project, and Harvest of Hope programs, which salvage fresh produce that would otherwise be wasted and donates it to feed the hungry. SoSA is one of the nation's largest nonprofit suppliers of fresh produce to the hungry.
