The Board of Directors and volunteers of Interfaith Food Ministry greatly appreciates the recognition from the Nevada County Board of Supervisors. The dedication of Interfaith Food Ministry's over 450 volunteers and generosity of the Nevada County Community truly makes IFM's motto of "Feeding Families, Fueling Hope" a reality. Unfortunately, there was a typo on the Resolution The Resolution stated that IFM provided "992,5342,522" bags of groceries in 2016. IFM gave 92,534 bags of groceries in 2016. Interfaith Food Ministry is always concerned with integrity and transparency and wants to ensure that our community has the correct information.
