Did you know that 40% of America’s food is wasted?
North Carolina Interfaith Power & Light partnered with the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle program to help get some of that wasted food into the homes of people who need it most. In 2013, the Food Shuttle distributed over 7.1 million pounds of food that would have otherwise gone to waste.
In addition to food distribution, the organization works with schools to provide food to children from food-insecure homes. They also do door-to-door distribution of fresh produce and groceries to seniors.
By saving unused food from going into landfills, NC IPL and the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle are helping reduce carbon emissions and combat hunger in North Carolina.
