We Grow

Give a man a fish. Teach a man to fish. Stock the pond for all.

This ancient proverb is our guiding principle for all we do at Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.  While feeding people in immediate need is critical, it’s not enough.  We must teach skills for self-sufficiency and develop sources of fresh, healthy food in every low-income community. We must also advocate for systemic policy changes that support those in need, including protecting SNAP benefits and raising the minimum wage.  If we come together— government,  civic organizations, businesses, the faith community, nonprofits, and individuals—we CAN grow a healthy, hunger-free community.  The stories below illustrate how the community is growing this vision into a reality.
