RALEIGH, N.C. — Bag after bag and trip and after trip, the workers at Raleigh's Interfaith Food Shuttle are preparing for a big delivery.
Each Friday, the load goes to feed Wake County’s youngest residents.
According to the Wake County Public School System, about half of the county's students rely on the free and reduced lunch program, and many of them go hungry on the weekends.
"I think people think of hunger, they think of Africa, Southeast Asia or Latin America,” said Kyle Abrams, Childhood Hunger Program manager of the Interfaith Food Shuttle. “They don't think in the Triangle, in their own community, a kid that their kid goes to school with."
Raleigh, October 1, 2014: A meeting was held yesterday at Hope Charter Elementary School to address food insecurity amongst the student population. The community action group consisted of 6 different organizations represented by 7 individuals: Hope Charter Leadership Academy (Megan Johnson), Household of Faith Ministries (Brittany Williamson), Interfaith Food Shuttle (Kyle Abram), PNC Bank (Steven Dance), Raleigh Mennonite Church (Duane and Lois Beck), and Kayte Thomas. They addressed underlying challenges faced by the families served at the school: food stamp shortages, transportation issues, income limits, health disparities, and other issues commonly encountered by lower income communities. The group’s goal is to ensure that none of the students go hungry on the weekends, when the children often struggle most with receiving regular meals.
