Mission: The mission of Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is to feed people in need and mobilize our community to eliminate hunger. We are a proud member of Feeding America. The Food Bank leadership and board of directors have a shared vision of a hunger-free southwestern Pennsylvania.
Results: Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank exists because growing numbers of people in our community struggle with meeting a basic human need – food.
The challenge of food insecurity in our community continues to grow and can be experienced by anyone, regardless of age, sex, race, creed or even employment status. Recently, we have seen an alarming increase in the number of employed people who are in need of food assistance.
In Fiscal Year 2015, community support allowed the Food Bank to:
• Serve 110,000 people each month; and
• Distribute more than 22 million meals across 11 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania.
We invite you to join us in making a difference in the lives of our neighbors who need us most. Your generous donation will make a meaningful difference in the lives of the families, children and seniors who have nowhere else to turn for their most basic human need -- to put food on their table.
Target demographics: feed people in need and mobilize our community to eliminate hunger.
Geographic areas served: 11 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania
I am aclient of one of the local pantries served by Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and have had only positive experiences with it in the last 5 years that I have used it. I am also a volunteer at my local pantry for the last 3 years. The food I receive is good and nutricious and goes a long way in extending my food budget. Every volunteer and employee I've met has been wonderful and extremely helpful.
