Organization Description and Mission::
Our mission is to feed the hungry of southwestern Pennsylvania through a network of partners and to mobilize our region to end hunger.
Since 1980, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank has worked to meet an ever-growing demand for food assistance by rescuing, diverting, buying, and distributing more than 300 million pounds of food. Each month, we deliver more than 2 million pounds of food to tens of thousands of people in an 11 county area through a community-based legion of more than 400 member agencies. The regional food banks, food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, after school programs, and senior centers we work with connect people to the food they need to survive.
We see our role as more than providing calories to communities, but as playing a vital role in public health outcomes. To this end, we concentrate on providing nutritious food to the people we serve, and on providing nutrition education to help ensure that the food we provide is prepared and eaten as part of a healthy meal pattern and to help the families we serve understand the vital role nutrition plays in overall health outcomes.
