The following statement concerning Western Wake Crisis Ministry was sent to The Apex Herald by Kia E. Baker, Director of Food Recovery & Distribution at the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is keenly aware of the challenges that hunger relief agencies face to keep up with the growing demands of families in need in the current economic landscape. It is precisely these challenges that compelled us to re-examine our distribution model.
The changes that have affected Western Wake Crisis Ministry and others are aligned with our new direct distribution model through our signature Mobile Markets. These markets are strategically placed throughout the county to ensure that families in need have monthly access to fresh produce and other food items. We intend to open a new Mobile Market serving western Wake county in April. Once details have been finalized, we will share them with our friends at Western Wake Crisis Ministry in hopes that they will help spread the word to families in need.
But none of us can end hunger alone. All hunger relief agencies depend on the community for support, and we all need that support now more than ever. For more information about Mobile Markets and IFFSs innovations to end hunger in our community, I encourage you to visit www.foodshuttle.org.
