Because they often find themselves with surplus or unmarketable produce, we partner with local farmers to provide this produce to families in need.
Are you a farmer interested in partnering with the Food Bank? Please call our donation hotline at 412-460-1360 or email [email protected] today!
There are a lot of different ways we engage with local farms
When a farmer has crops that aren’t financially feasible to harvest, we can help! Our gleaning program will coordinate Food Bank staff and volunteers to harvest that food and put it to work feeding neighbors in need!
Getting involved as a volunteer is easy, just sign up to receive our glean alerts!
Sometimes a product has been harvested already, but won’t make it to market, or made it to market and won’t be sold. We rescue that food, either utilizing our fleet of trucks, or leveraging our vast network of member agencies to pick that food up so it won’t go to waste!
