And he’s determined to help build it. But with more than 38 million people, including 12 million children, experiencing food insecurity in the United States, it’s no small task. Ron’s powerful personal story energizes his work as CEO of Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, a massive force for good in North Carolina’s Raleigh-Durham area, growing and serving millions of pounds of food per year with innovative programs that address the root causes of hunger. Because, as Ron says, “If you want to break a pattern, it starts in the mind. And if food is present, a child can hope, a child can dream, a child can grow up to give back.” Like Ron did.
