The Food Bank has done wonders to not only feed our neighbors in need, but proactively fight food waste. By Chef Tessa Nguyen, RD, LDN
After volunteering across the country, Kat & Bert wanted to help neighbors in need in their home community. The Food Bank is just what they were looking for!
“My precious mother worked faithfully at a job that, despite her best efforts, could not provide all we needed. Many nights I cried myself to sleep because I was hungry.”
Since 1998, the Food Bank’s Fresh Produce Program has provided fresh local produce to neighbors in need while helping farmers recoup costs from food that is edible but not sellable.
Raleigh Moravian Church has a long history of giving to the Food Bank. “We understand that feeding people takes both food and money, and that this is a never-ending ministry,” said Jami Vandock, Director of Christian Education.
The first time Shannon received help with food, she was 8 years old. Now she is a middle school teacher and has students who arrive every day hungry. “It is your first worry every day as a teacher,” she says.
