Last Thursday, July 13, 2017, 24 Capitol Broadcasting Company women met up to give back to the community at the Inter-Faith-Food Shuttle Farm.
RALEIGH, NC - For the second year, MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM and WRAL-TV are joining forces to feed hungry children through the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s child hunger programs. The stations will once again mount a day-long Mediathon on TV, radio, web, and mobile to raise funds on Wednesday, July 19, along with a multiple-location food drive.
Over 15 years ago, a cold, hungry, black kitten trotted in the Food Shuttle door. He first appeared late in the fall, and though he enjoyed the toys and food left out for him, he was too fearful to let anyone catch him. That changed after the Food Shuttle closed for several days during a winter snow event. When Sid Williams opened up at 7am that first day back, Riley Cat followed him in out of the cold. And he never left.
NEWS & OBSERVER - The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle has long been a force of good in Raleigh, redistributing unused food from restaurants, grocery stores and other retail businesses to programs and organizations that feed the hungry.
