2020 marks the 11th annual government-wide Feds Feed Families (FFF) campaign, which encourages employees from all federal departments and agencies to give in-kind contributions -- food, services, and time -- to food banks and pantries.
This year’s campaign highlights a summer of giving in June and July, along with seasonal reminders to donate throughout the year. FFF 2020 takes place from June 1 – July 31, 2020.
Now more than ever, food banks, including Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank are seeing higher demand from individuals and families in need.
-Since March 16, the Food Bank has held 27 drive-up food distributions serving 24,500 vehicles more than 1.3 million pounds of food.
-The Food Bank Doorstep Delivery program has provided 3,677 residences a total of 92,000 pounds of food in our first month of service.
-For people who come to our facility for food, we have provided food to over 3,200 families since March 18.
-The Food Banks' new Community Organization program has allocated 9,240 boxes to 68 new organizations since April 13.
-The Food Bank has packed 132,000 emergency food boxes at our facility in Duquesne and at our temporary secondary operations hub at the Monroeville Convention Center.
