As a former intern of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, I cannot say enough good things about what goes on behind and beyond their walls. The individuals of this organization are not simply employees by the Food Bank but they embody a the mission to further the community through their efforts to eradicate hunger. The management is outstanding and because of such superb leadership, the Food Bank is able to efficiently and effectively work to bring about change in the community. This is an organization that loves and serves like a nonprofit but has the efficiency and success rate of a fortune 500 company. The Food Bank is without a doubt the most meaningful nonprofit I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with.

I work for a local Head Start Program and we often refer our families to the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank. These are difficult times for many of our families and those with small children often doubly effected. Young children need nutritious food to develop and grow strong. Our families have experienced wonderful results from being working with the food bank. Our program often refers families to local food banks who receive their food supplies from the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank. The Food Bank has a terrific reputation in the community and have expanded to reach many more counties. Their strength is in their ability to serve many communities and also the quality of the food products that the food bank receives from their resources. There are many of our families that would go hungry without the resources of the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank.

The Great!

For several years, our Highmark sales team has volunteered to pack food as an annual team building exercise. (Packing frozen pierogies was my favorite exercise!) It's hard work, and at the end of the day we were exhausted. What was disturbing was learning that the sources of food supplies have steadily diminished over the years. Seeing shelves that were partially empty was a frightening sight, especially in this economic climate. While more and more people rely on the food bank, less and less is available for them. It's a sad comment for the richest country in the world.

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank does absolutely wonderful work. Through a volunteer experience we had the opportunity to give to this organization and I just wanted to share what wonderful work they do and how proud we are to have them as part of the community.

As a past recruiter of nonprofit internships, I worked with several staff members at the Food Bank in developing position descriptions, outlining expectations and maintaining our partnership. Not only were these staff members some of the most professional and hard-working individuals I have met, but they all shared a deep passion for their mission. Furthermore, the young people we placed at the Food Bank were generously supported throughout their experience. In my opinion, the GPCFB is one of the most effective non-profits in our region.

The Great!

From my time at the Food Bank, I was incredibly impressed with the size and scope of their programs, from volunteer involvement to the amount of food they give away each year. The atmosphere was friendly and inviting, and staff were gracious and knowledgeable.
