Discussing Food at Quail Ridge Books
During the budget hearings a few months ago there was an overwhelming response from Raleigh citizens about the hunger crisis in our community. Many of you wrote me and my fellow Councilors about the importance of the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and maintaining its funding. Through this dialogue I came to learn that thousands of people rely on the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle as a consistent source of meals and fresh produce. While this great organization provides a much needed service, wouldn't it be nice if they weren't needed? In the spirit of continuing the conversation about food in NC I would like to extend this upcoming opportunity at Quail Ridge Books in Ridgewood Shopping Center. This store continues to be a thriving local business with an excellent attention to community. Hope to see you there!
