Inter-Faith Food Shuttle extends a HUGE thanks to the community who came out to Western Wake Farmers' Market with non-perishable foods to support our BackPack Buddies program on November 7th! The Thanksgiving Food Drive was held during the Fall Crafts Festival this year. Folks attending the Craft Festival and shopping for local produce from vendors at the Market donated 178 pounds of food for low-income kids in addition to fresh produce that would have normally rotted in a landfill! Western Wake Farmers' Market donates fresh foods to the Food Shuttle every week, and their generosity continued with this Food Drive.
