We are extremely grateful to the SearStone community for their steadfast support of our Grocery Bags for Seniors program in Wake County. This program assists our low-income elderly neighbors with door-to-door distribution of fresh & shelf-stable foods tuned to senior dietary requirements and engages participants in nutrition-education activities and training.
The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle welcomes employees from CBS 17 to the Food Shuttle Farm and Child Food Hub for a Day of Caring.
Monday, June 17, is Nexstar Media’s 2019 Founder’s Day of Caring! To commemorate the holiday, CBS 17 employees spent their Monday donating their time and talent working in service to the community.
Our CBS 17 team worked with the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle in Durham, the Food Shuttle Farm in Raleigh and the Urban Ministry in Fayetteville.
Groups worked to support these worthy organizations by assembling and providing grocery bags for seniors, sorting food donations for Backpack Buddies which are filled with essential meals and snacks for children in need of emergency food relief, and helping the warehouse staff with food recovery sorting.
Another group of our adventurous CBS 17’ers went out on the farm and assisted farm staff pulling weeds, transplanting crops and preparing produce for distribution.
We at CBS 17 are proud to care about our community and encourage all businesses to consider a similar effort and come together for the greater good of the community in a tangible way.
The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and Alliance Medical Ministry share a special bond of a long partnership and a shared mission of looking comprehensively at a problem and determining holistic solutions. For the Food Shuttle, it’s hunger relief; for Alliance Medical Ministry, it’s healthcare. And as we all know, those often go hand in hand.
The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is one of the 50 Food Banks across the nation partnering with Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation for their Day of Service on May 22, 2019. The Food Shuttle has designated Warehouse, BackPack Buddies, and Farm volunteer opportunities for Metallica fans to get involved.
