Sometimes people ask us, "What's it like to work at the Food Shuttle?" Well, it's great. The Food Shuttle staff is a truly talented, dedicated and fun bunch.(See the whole cast of characters here. Get to know some of them better here.) Plus, we know the work we do makes an impact for good on many people and communities. What could be better? But still, sometimes we need a break. Not from innovative solutions to hunger, but just a break from the daily grind. A little pick me up. We got that and more last night at the RBC Center. The Carolina Hurricanes, in addition to being the 2006 Stanley Cup Champions, are also champions in the community. Their Kids 'N Community Foundation helps area non-profits like the Food Shuttle continue and expand their work. Read more about the foundation here.
We were thrilled when we learned they had selected IFFS to receive support to feed hungry children. And last night during intermission of the 'Canes-St. Louis Game, the Food Shuttle and other area non-profits were presented checks from the Kids 'N Community Foundation. Read more about it here. On top of that, the 'Canes had the Food Shuttle staff out to watch the game, on the house.
We all had a blast. Just the nice shake-up we needed. Cece took a few pictures on her iphone(!). Check them out below. Thanks again to the Carolina Hurricanes, the Kids 'N Communitity Foundation and a special thanks to Doug Warf, Director of Community Relations for the Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Kids 'N Community Foundation.
