Overview

Join us on March 16, 2019, for the third annual Food Shuttle Garden Gallop 5K to benefit the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle's Urban Agriculture Education Initiatives! We welcome everyone of every age! Run, walk, or even gallop to help people in our community! 

The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is an innovative hunger-relief organization serving seven counties in and around the Triangle. We believe hunger is fixable if the community works together to do two things: create sources of healthy food in every low-income neighborhood and grow opportunities for people to provide for themselves by learning job skills or growing their own food.

This year the Food Shuttle Garden Gallop 5K will benefit the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s Urban Agriculture Education Initiative including programs which teach sustainable food production and nutritious meal preparation, promote the establishment of gardens to increase healthy food access and develop sustainable community food system models. 
The funds raised will go towards programs such as Sprout Scouts,
 a skills-based afterschool program that teaches students about cooking, gardening, and nutrition education in a hands-on, fun and engaging way, and Seed to Supper, a five-week beginners gardening course, teaching individuals how to grow their own fruits and vegetables, build backyard gardens, and sustain their harvest. 

All proceeds from the race will be donated to the Urban Agriculture Education programs in our community!
