 Ken Cawthorne
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle


Ken is passionate about helping those less fortunate in the community. As a driver for the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Food Recovery & Distribution Routes for Durham, he goes out of his way to deliver exceptional service. As the lead driver for the Durham route, Ken works with other drivers to ensure that the route is covered. He develops personal relationships with everyone on the route, including grocery store employees, and partner agencies' volunteers, participants, and staff. Ken also advocates on behalf of the community partners with whom he works. For example, he sent an email about a TROSA graduation and had this to say about it: “Every other Friday their facility on North Street in Durham is a stop on my Durham B route. Most, if not all of the workers in TROSA's enterprises are program participants. I wish all of you could experience the joy we get interacting with the participants in the North Street facility's food service.”

Thank you, Ken, for forging relationships in a true spirit of community!
