Jill Staton Bullard
The arrival of July brings us to a time of great change and great promise...

Hopefully, you have all heard the official announcement: Co-Founder  Jill Staton Bullard will retire from IFFS (but  not from food-systems advocacy!) at the end of July. Jill's vision grew the Food Shuttle's mission beyond simply Feeding our neighbors in need. Today the Food Shuttle works to empower our neighbors in need by  Teaching them work and life-skills. And we work to improve our community by Growing  a more equitable food system for all.  The future is about building on that foundation, and Jill would be the first to say we can only end hunger if we move forward together.  
In Jill's own words: "The Food Shuttle is effective only because of the support of food donors, volunteer- based soup kitchens and outreach agencies, and a host of public and private supporters, and I want to thank them for the hard work they have committed to us over the years."

When I think of the Food Shuttle's signature approach to hunger (multiple programs, supported by multiple partners), I can think of no better example than our  #BackPackBuddies MediaThon on Wednesday, July 13th . Media partners MIX 101.5 and WRAL-TV will focus all day on our mission to end childhood hunger. You can help our children in need by tuning in, donating money, donating food, or volunteering Together, let's declare that child hunger is UNACCEPTABLE. What better way to celebrate Jill's legacy?
