Food Dude

Win a Date with the Food Dude!

You’ve seen him in such Youtube classics as Energy Boost and Where’s Riley?  You’ve wondered, what’s the Food Dude really like? Now you can find out in our inaugural, one-of-a-kind, Valentines-Day-Related-contest! We’re offering a chance to accompany the Food Dude on a Food Recovery route! What does that mean? It means you’ll go for a ride around in a 22-foot stretch refrigerated truck, you’ll recover food from  some of the most popular food service establishments in Raleigh, deliver it off to pantries, shelters and soup kitchens and have a blast along the way! You’ll also get a catered lunch from our own Chef Terri Hutter and the first-of-its-kind Food Dude T-Shirt! So how can you win this amazing prize package? It’s a blind auction, but we’re not asking for money. We’re asking you to “bid” volunteer hours. How many hours would you give towards helping feed children, seniors and families in the Greater Triangle to win this prestigious contest? Here’s how it works:

Email with the number of volunteer hours you bid to win a date with the Food Dude. The highest number of volunteer hours wins. Put “Food Dude” in the subject line. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 pm, Sunday, February 14, 2010.  We’ll announce the winner on Monday, February, 15, 2010. Details will be worked out later, but our Food Recovery routes run M-F between approximately 8-2. Your Food Dude experience will last about 2 hours.

Guest Bloggin' for AHA!

We've been guest blogging this month for our friends Advocates for Health in Action. Check it out here. In honor of our first guest blogging spot, we made a new Food Dude Video. If you loved him in "Where's Riley?", you'll go bonkers for "Energy Boost". Enjoy it below. Do us a favor and go ahead and pass this link around to your friends and family. We're building the framework for an Oscar nomination for 2011 and we need to get some buzz going.

Where's Riley?

It's a new year, and it's started off with some interesting changes here at the Food Shuttle! If you haven't stopped by since we rang in the new year, you might be unaware that some of your IFFS friends have changed offices and some have even changed buildings. Take a look at this video to see how The Food Dude investigates and gets down to the bottom of what's been happening at the Shuttle.
