Since 1979 the Society of St. Andrew has helped bridge the gap between good food going to waste, over 133 billion pounds of food per year, and the millions of Americans who live in poverty. The Society of St. Andrew saves and distributes between 25-30 million pounds of fresh produce each year by coordinating resources that already are in existence. More than 50 million Americans go hungry, including women, children, the unemployed, the working poor and homeless people. More information can be found at the Society of St. Andrew website,

Since 1985, the Neosho United Methodist Church has served up soup during the annual Potato Soup Benefit, offering a tasty meal for a great cause. Stop by for lunch or dinner on Friday!
