I don't have a sad story to tell. I am just one of many who donate to the Pittsburgh Food Bank because of all the wonderful things they do to help those in need. I have been very fortunate in my life and simply want to help those who have not been as lucky. I urge all those sitting down to a great family meal today to think about those who will not, then DONATE!

I donate fairly regularly to the food bank, and would like to take the next step and volunteer on some kind of regular basis. I was able to take part in a gleaning a few summers ago, where I helped to harvest fresh vegetables, and really loved the experience. For me, being able to go to more gleanings would be a really enjoyable way to make a tangible impact in my community, and a great way to get more involved in a purely physical aspect. It is one of my goals for the upcoming summer, and by writing a review I hope to make it become a reality.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Fighting hunger, especially by avoiding food waste, is one of my favorite ways to make a difference in the world, and one in which I'd like to be more involved.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase public awareness of food waste, and increase opportunities to donate non-perishable items in several locations (to make it more likely that people not waste unwanted or ill-considered groceries!).

As a donor I appreciate the Pittsburgh Food Bank's ability to funnel such a high percentage of donations to the community. The website is very easy to use to make a donation, find information or volunteer. I have attended several different Pittsburgh Food Bank events such as a wine dinner at Eleven, Empty Bowl and several events where there are canned food donations encouraged. They get the donation word out in so many imaginative ways. All this being said the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of the Pittsburgh Food Bank is the THOUGHTFUL and RESPECTFUL way they serve the community. Thank you to all who support, in any way, our food bank.

As a donor I looked at organizations that would put the money I give to help the most in need. The Gr. Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is the best at what they do. In these hard times they are serving more with limited resources. People that never thought they would be in trouble are being helped. I trust since the CEO is retiring that the Gr. Pittsburgh Community Food Bank will find the best person that will be a dedicated to carrying out the mission.

When I was in high school, I met with the PR director of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to write a report on public relations. Not only did I learn more about PR, learned about the wonderful work they do. I have a been a volunteer or donor ever since. I know that the majority of money donated to the food bank goes directly to support their work. I am also very impressed with the way they communicate with me and the ways they make the issue of hunger known in the community. I am very proud to support this organization.

I am a California transplant to Pittsburgh and have been donating to the Pittsburgh Community Food Bank for the last 3 years. I am very impressed with the fact that they are very organized and pro-active. I receive reminders when the need is anticipated to be higher than usual. It always nudges me to donate and is appreciated. I hope to find more ways to volunteer in the future and to get my grandchildren involved. They are a wonderful organization and I feel very deserving of your help.

My family and I contribute 5% of our monthly income to the food bank because we believe in their work and the positive impact it has on the community. I also have volunteered there and saw how well the distribution center is organized from managing volunteers, to collecting and packaging the food, to preparing it for transport.

For the past three years, I have organized and ran a fundraiser for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank called Frisbee for Food. The event is a casual frisbee tournament with a $5 entry fee, and about 200 high school kids attend each year. The event has raised about $1500 each year, and it is an amazing time. Students at my high school really respect the food bank, and everybody is willing to donate what they can and make a fun day out of helping charity. I've also gleaned with the food bank, which is such a fun way for people to volunteer. I spent the day bonding with caring people from the Pittsburgh Community and it not only made me feel like I was really helping, but it also gave me a connection to the Food Bank that I can't say I have with any other non-profit that I have donated to or volunteered for.

I donate to the food bank on a regular basis and attend some of their fundraising events. They seem to be one of the best run non-profits in the area. I am amazed at all the things they do, from providing legislative updates to bringing fresh food into areas that do not have access. Their fundraising events are also fun, along with being worthwhile.
