In Allegheny County, nearly 11% of the residents do not have consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. To address this critical issue, we seek to support programs and services that assist low-income individuals and families to obtain enough food--especially healthy, culturally-appropriate food--to meet the nutritional needs of all members of their household.
Specifically, we are interested in supporting the following toward addressing food insecurity:
- Neighborhood-based food banks and food pantries.
- Meal delivery programs.
- Farmer’s markets.
- Community gardens and farms.
- Summer, weekend and after-school meal programs.
- Programs that assist eligible families with applying for benefit programs that provide access to food, such as SNAP and WIC.
Note: While we recognize the importance of nutrition education programs, we only currently accept applications that include the provision of food.
