Mission: Inter-Faith Food Shuttle pioneers innovative, transformative solutions designed to end hunger in our community. We believe that hunger is unacceptable. We build people, jobs, and a hunger-free community. We feed, teach, and grow across many different programs, spanning food distribution, nutrition education, job training, and sustainable agriculture.
