Inter-Faith Food Shuttle pioneers innovative, transformative solutions designed to end hunger in our community. Since 1989, Inter-Faith Food Shuttle has been serving the greater Triangle alleviating the growing problem of hunger. Inter-Faith Food Shuttle serves children, adults, families and the elderly through proactive programs; moving beyond emergency food provision to sustainable, local solutions to food hardships.
How is Food a Problem in America?
As a grassroots response to food waste at the local retail and wholesale level, the Food Recovery program collects healthy perishable food from over 350 donors and quickly distributes it to agencies in the greater Triangle on refrigerated vehicles.
How Our Food is Supplied
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle receives food from over 350 donors such as grocery stores, catering companies, corporate cafeterias, restaurants, wholesale food brokers, vending companies, and The North Carolina State Farmers Market. The food is donated so we can donate it to the organizations in the areas that feed the needy--the soup kitchens, pantries, outreach missions, and shelters.
How We Move the Food
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle has a fleet of 13 refrigerated trucks that move the donated food. Staff and volunteers are trained in the best food safety practices.
Who Receives the Food?
The Food Shuttle provides food to over 220 agencies and programs that serve the greater Triangle area such as shelters, soup kitchens, outreach efforts in local housing authorities and faith-based pantries.
Less than 30% of people in need access established agencies, so we go to where the people are through:
