Review from Guidestar
February 14, 2011

As a Public Health Nurse who concentrates on chronic disease prevention and works with vulnerable, underserved populations that the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank reaches out to, I am very impressed with their efforts to get healthier foods and education about healthier eating to the people who utilize their services. The GPCFB is always eager to collaborate with agencies and organizations to bring their messages and information to the Food Bank clients. For example, the GPCFB arranged for the National Kidney Foundation, The American Diabetes Association and the Allegheny County Health Department to have tables with their materials and information about their services at successive Produce to the People distribution events last fall. This collaboration provided the clients an opportunity to get health information and screenings they might not have received. It provided the agencies and organization with access to targeted, high-risk, medically underserved people that they need to reach. It was very beneficial and an example of how GPCFB thinks outside the box and is always looking to collaborate.

The Great!

I wish this organization could get more support and more funding from local, state and federal governments. They have done an exemplary job with the resources and staffing the have to work with.

I met with Anne Hawkins, the Chief Development Director and Maureen Joyce, the Development Web Administrator to get their profile up here on the GNP website. The first thing that struck me was the size of the building. It shouldn't have been surprising, considering the large volume of goods they handle. Through the meeting, I was impressed with the degree of information they had memorized about the organization and its metrics. The level of professionalism, quality and expertise I saw at this organization was very high.
