Review for Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, Duquesne, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I staffed tables with information about chronic diseases and services for people without health insurance at Produce to the People .
