On Friday, September 20, Inter-Faith Food Shuttle helped unload a pallet of food at the school pantry on North Carolina Central University campus. For Food Shuttle staff, this was the launch of their 28th School Pantry, and the third on a college campus.
As thousands of children head back to school, Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is gearing up for a full year of making sure that as many kids as possible have enough food to eat. With the launch of the Child Food Hub in September 2018, https://www.foodshuttle.org/blog/2018/10/1/new-child-food-hub-to-help-make-sure-kids-wont-go-hungry there is a planned increased to provide 2,900 children each week with BackPack Buddies bags so they’ll have food to eat over the weekend.
The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is excited to have two new Food Corps AmeriCorps members, Nathalie Kauz and Annie Kersting, and a new Share Our Strength AmeriCorps member, Caity Ashley, join the Food Shuttle staff for one year. Hear from our new AmeriCorps to learn what brought them to the Food Shuttle!
How can we even begin to say “thank you” to the people who do so much? ach April during National Volunteer Week, we are grateful to take time to recognize the amazing power of our volunteer force. This year, we tried to really do it up right, with activities throughout the week, including Open Houses at all of the Ag locations, breakfast & lunch provided by Catering With a Cause, and a host of volunteer awards!
