We have witnessed people going with little or no food in the neighborhoods on the east side of Pittsburgh over the last 10 years through our various community and organizational outreach programs.
Statistics confirm in Allegheny County: (found at http://www.pittsburghfoodbank.org/)
- Food Insecure Population: 174,110
- Food Insecure Children: 42,170
- Population in Poverty: 154,639
In desiring to continue to make a greater and consistent impact to those who are not able to receive sufficient assistance or have barriers in getting aid, because of physical and transportation issues; we have a Mobile Food Bank program where we take food to 12 east side Pittsburgh neighborhoods on a monthly basis and partner with other non-profit organizations.
You can help in our fight against hunger by volunteering. Please check out our calendar for the days and times of our mobile food bank outreaches. (http://www.pghdreamcenter.org/events/)
