Thus far in 2020 until the end of July we have distributed 597,467 pounds of food accounting to 497889 meals.
Each month we are providing a 40 to 50 pound box of food to on average 1250 families during our regular distribution. Additionally, we are providing about 500 families on a Saturday distribution a 40 to 50 pound box of food. Over half of our total pounds distributed is fresh produce items.
We are a nonprofit organization that accomplishes our program totally through donations of time, food purchased and supplied from the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank, donations from farmers, and donations of money.
Helping our brothers and sisters can be a rewarding in many aspects of our lives. It helps us to cultivate compassion, generosity, and most importantly love for our fellow man. If you are interested in somehow being part of our program and its mission, there are many ways you can help.
