This year, we’re partnering with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.

The Food Shuttle is a nonprofit dedicated providing a uniquely holistic solution to the hunger crisis facing our community. The organization’s mantra is “Feed, Teach, Grow” – they distribute over 6 million pounds of food each year, teach classes on healthy and affordable meal prep, and operate multiple learning gardens. 

The Food Shuttle is finding new ways to fight hunger and break cycles of poverty. To learn more about The Food Shuttle and their various programs, take a look at foodshuttle.org.

Fast Facts:

  • Nearly 500,000 children are at risk of hunger in North Carolina, the 10th hungriest state in the nation. That means 1 in 5 kids are food insecure.
  • Inter-Faith Food Shuttle takes a holistic “Feed, Teach, and Grow” approach to child hunger through meal delivery as well as community health and gardening education. 
  • BackPack Buddies provide six meals and two snacks at 90 school sites for children to eat every weekend during the school year. School Pantries create a welcoming and convenient space for students, their families, and the surrounding community to access nutritious food.

How Our Partnership Will Help:

Ticket sales, individual donations and corporate sponsorships to our 2019 Main Event concert will directly support the Food Shuttle’s new Child Food Hub, a dedicated 7,000 sq. ft. facility in Durham, to increase the impact of these Child Hunger Programs. In the next five years, this space will grow BackPack Buddies by more than 50% and increase School Pantries by 44%.
