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.
Mission moments are stories we share with each other to inform, inspire and motivate. Sometimes it is hard to remember exactly why we are here… Mission Moments remind us all just how lucky we are to be able to do this important work.

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.
