Backpack Buddies

Healthy meals…helping kids

Did you know that 81,000 children in the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle service area receive free and reduced lunches each school day?

But what about weekends?

The Food Shuttle creates partnerships with some local schools and volunteers to deliver backpacks filled with nutritious, non-perishable food to selected children for weekends. NRUMC is one of these partners.

How can I help?

You can help feed hungry children by volunteering to fill backpacks or help with the delivery of the backpacks each week.

How can I volunteer or get more information?

For more information and/or to volunteer, please email Bruce or Penny Oland or call them at 919.606.5210.
