Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank
February 8, 2011

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 Great!

General Member of the Public & volunteered as a food packer.
