Thank You: Hunger Action Month Community Partners

At the Food Shuttle, we believe that beating hunger can only happen through collaboration, with different organizations working together to alleviate hunger in our communities. That's why we want to thank our community partners who teamed up with us this September to fight hunger for Hunger Action Month.

We are grateful for our food drive partners who donated and sorted over 12,976 pounds of food to support BackPack Buddies, Hurricane Florence relief, School Pantries, Grocery Bags for Seniors, and Mobile Markets.
