Give someone a fish and they eat for a day. Teach someone to fish – and how to restock the pond – and you have the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, a program that targets hunger, transforms lives and plants new growth to end hunger for good.
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle was born in 1989, when founders Jill Staton Bullard and Maxine Solomon learned that some food that restaurants didn’t sell got thrown away. Their discovery uncovered an untapped source in the fight to end hunger: restaurants, catering companies and other businesses that have to throw away prepared or fresh foods that go unsold.
From those beginnings, the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle has become the source for nutritious, fresh food for the hungry in seven counties.
