Interfaith Council shelter pantry

My job: Unloading the food truck which comes from Durham.

We usually get 7-8 pallets of canned food (corn, beans, potatoes, soup, etc.) and a lot of frozen chickens!

What I’ve learned from this job:

  • The IFC serves 3,300 local households and provides approximately 1600 bags of groceries per month to families in need.
  • They do so with very little governmental assistance – – roughly 1/10 of the IFC’s operating budget.
  • The organization is staffed by an incredible team of people dedicated to serving the needs of our town’s most disadvantaged citizens.
