The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank has announced it's next emergency drive-up food distribution.
MONDAY, APRIL 6TH, FROM NOON TO 3PM at the Food Bank's Warehouse in Duquesne.
For the safety of the staff and volunteers working to set-up the event, those attending the event are asked to plan to arrive no earlier than 11 a.m. via the intersection of 837 (South Duquesne Blvd.) and South Linden St.
Those arriving earlier than 11 a.m. may be asked to come back. Additionally, no cars arriving after 3 p.m. will be able to receive food assistance. Local law enforcement will once again assist the organization with traffic control.
For the safety of all staff, volunteers and attendees, the Food Bank is asking individuals to follow a couple of guidelines.
For everyone’s safety and to maintain the six-foot social distancing guideline, individuals must stay in their cars at all times except to use the provided outdoor restroom facilities placed along Linden St. Leaving cars to socialize is prohibited.
After pulling up to distribution area, please put the car in park and then unlock the trunk or backseat for food to be loaded. For everyone’s safety, volunteers will not be able to load food into the cars until they are in park.
To maintain social distancing, when food is being loaded into the car, please do not get out of the car.
Stay alert and follow the guidance of Food Bank staff and police as they direct cars through the distribution area.
In the interest of serving as many cars as possible, individuals attending this and any future Food Bank emergency food distribution will receive one food share per car regardless of the number of families or groups in the vehicle. A food share provides enough food for at least 25 meals. The organization’s network of food pantries is strong and ready to assist those who need additional assistance with food.
