We serve neighbors living on the Northside.
The pantry serves about 1,800 households annually; some, such as seniors on fixed incomes, rely on the pantry throughout the year. Others count on it to just get through a month or two during hard times. To qualify for assistance, a person must show proof of a home address in one of three zip codes: 15212, 15214 or 15233.
1,845 households made up of 9,956 people were served by the Northside Food Pantry in 2012.
The help helps.
As of August 2013, 1,406 households have been served by the pantry. Three visitors to the pantry and one of its volunteers share how the pantry helps our neighbors in need.
