The Food Shuttle Operates 27 school pantries in 4 counties, serving more than 2,000 people every month.
In 2016, our school pantries provided 50,094 pounds of food for 19,802 individuals in about 3,686 households. And five of the pantries didn't even open until the fall.
School pantries provide a welcoming and convenient space for students, their families, and the surrounding community to access nutritious food. Student volunteers often run the pantries, helping to remove the stigma of needing food, and learning the valuable lesson of helping others in need.
A student can grab a snack or quick meal during the school day, or someone can come in and choose from a balanced selection of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, and even meats, to help feed their family.

Our Community Partners
DURHAM - Hundreds more children will have healthy food to eat with the opening of the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s Child Food Hub in Durham. The 7,000-square-foot warehouse on South Miami Boulevard near Research Triangle Park will serve as the hub for child-hunger programs, including BackPack Buddies and PORCH-Durham, as well as food pantries at schools in seven Triangle-area counties.
The Food Shuttle is opening its new Child Food Hub, a 7,000 sq. ft. facility that will lead the way in fighting childhood hunger in the Greater Triangle.
Smithfield Foods partners with us to alleviate Child Hunger by donating $16,000 to support School Pantries.
The Food Shuttle has officially opened its 25th school pantry! The newest pantry will serve students and the community in and around Smithfield-Selma High School and could not have happened without the generous support of Sysco Raleigh.
WUNC- Wake County Commission Chair Jessica Holmes understands kids who grow up not always knowing where they’ll find their next meal.
WRAL - There are now 10 food pantry programs in Wake County, including at Broughton where the principal said a third of the school is on free and reduced lunch.
For the second year in a row, Wake County Commissioners are partnering with the Food Shuttle to expand School Pantry access for at-risk teens. The newest pantry is at Broughton High School.
Because of donations from WRAL's #BackPackBuddies and partners of all types across the Triangle, we are able to expand the fight to feed hungry children this school year!
The Food Shuttle always tackles problems with multiple strategies, and feeding at-risk children over the summer is no different. Read below to see what we are doing to make sure kids are fed in Durham now that school is out.
