May 2014)

Mr. Steven Michael Waldmann

Profile:

Retired Coast Guard officer with 20 years extensive experience in Command positions as well as operational and fiscal management. A volunteer with SoSA for 6 years before coming on staff in 1994. Since 1996 he has served as the Chief Operating Officer with responsibility for all day-to-day operations and was promoted to Executive Director in 2008.

Leadership Statement:

Society of St. Andrew is one of the most successful, effective, and efficient nonprofits in the country. SoSA addresses two very real and vital problems in our nation: hunger and nutrition, and does so in a way that "just makes sense". Our programs prevent waste and reduce our nation's landfills. SoSA engages tens of thousands of volunteers, thousands of farmers and produce growers, and thousands of essential feeding programs. As a result, we feed millions of hungry Americans at just pennies per pound. SoSA brings it all together in a remarkable way. And we do this with a total overhead cost of just 3.4%! With distribution reaching into all 48 contiguous states, the Society of St. Andrew has a broad impact on a critical problem. The importance of SoSA's ministry is highlighted by the fact that we are often the only source of fresh produce available to many of the poor in our land. Nutrition is essential in any diet, and especially so for those who may get just one meal a day. The fresh fruits and vegetables that SoSA provides are often the only highly nutritious food available to those in poverty. Food Banks, soup kitchens, and other feeding agencies also depend on SoSA as a source of fresh produce to balance the long shelf-life food donations they normally receive. In 2012 we set all new records in all our important metrics. Achieving these accomplishments in the current economic environment is a hallmark of our success. The Gleaning Network, the Potato and Produce Project, and the Harvest of Hope all had a very successful year. That success was made possible by a wonderful network of thousands of farmers and growers, tens of thousands of volunteers, and thousands of feeding agencies; as well as individual, church, and corporate financial supporters in every state; and a remarkable staff and a dedicated and engaged Board of Directors. It all came together so that millions more hungry Americans could be fed.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Budget:
$700,000
Category:
Human Services, General/Other
Population Served:

Program Description:

Whether harvested mechanically or by hand, millions of tons of produce that does not meet top market specifications are left behind in the fields during harvest. SoSA coordinates with hundreds of farmers across the country who generously donate their leftover crops to feed the hungry. We then coordinate and supervise field gleaning events where our tens of thousands of volunteers simply pick-up the good crops left behind. Each year, about 3,000 gleaning events are conducted that result in millions of pounds of nutritious produce being saved and distributed to the hungry. SoSA volunteers then take this fresh produce directly to hundreds of feeding agencies and programs right in the local area where the gleaning is conducted. SoSA provides all the coordination and supervision among farmers, volunteers, transportation, and vital feeding programs that receive the food at no cost. Those receiving this nutritious food include: Food Banks (large and small), soup kitchens, homeless shelters, AIDS hospice homes, Salvation Army feeding programs, Senior feeding centers, and a host of other essential feeding programs in local areas. All are in desperate need of the fresh produce that this program provides in order to meet the nutritional need of those they serve.

Program Description:

After being harvested, fresh produce is sent to a packing facility where it undergoes another ""grade out"" process before it is packaged for final shipping. Once again, millions of pounds of produce that is perfectly good to eat are discarded as not meeting top market grade. This excess bounty is normally dumped in our nation's landfills when it could be used to feed the hungry instead. SoSA intercepts as much of this food as possible and ships truckloads of this perfectly good, but rejected, produce to all 48 contiguous states. The produce is donated at no cost, but SoSA must pay the packing and freight cost associated with shipping it to feeding agencies across the country. Each truckload saved is about 45,000 pounds of produce that will result in over 135,000 nutritious servings.

A variety of events take place throughout the year: week-long retreats for senior high youth (completed grades 9-12) and their adult sponsors; weekend retreats for junior high youth (completed grades 6-8) and their adult sponsors; a weekend retreat for college groups and young adults (ages 18-30); and weekend intergenerational retreats for ages 10 to 100. Harvest of Hope educates participants about the hunger problem domestically and globally and encourages them to make lifelong commitments to being part of the solution.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.
