Harvest of Hope is the ecumenical study, worship, and action mission program of the Society of St. Andrew. Harvest of Hope (HoH) provides an opportunity to learn about hunger and what to about it - gleaming - a commonsense biblical solution.  Together we will glean fresh fruits and vegetables which will immediately, through the help of local feeding agencies, find their way onto the table of those in need, usually by the next day!  HoH strives to provide an opportunity for participants to experience a simple and healthy lifestyle during the event. We will worship together, work together, and play together all while exploring what God wants us to do concerning our neighbors in need.
