Not everyone has the luxury of
always having food in their fridge or pantry and thousands of children in the
Triangle rely on free or reduced meals. But when schools are out for the
summer, the generosity of the Interfaith Food Shuttle comes to the rescue.
But Terri Hutter with the
Interfaith Food Shuttle says coming up with a healthy, kid-friendly menu can be
a bit of a challenge because it all depends on what food has been donated.
"We get to play mystery
basket every day," Hutter says. "We try to use produce from our farm
as much as possible. We have a lot of cabbage coming in this week that
we'll use at the end of the week."
Hutter says they sometimes have
to talk the kids into trying new foods, which eventually, they end up liking.
But Hutter isn't the only one
preparing meals. Interns from the Interfaith Food Shuttle's culinary job
training program help cook the meals.
