Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, a member of Feeding America, is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1980 that distributes more than 29 million meals annually throughout a network that exceeds 400 member agencies across 11 counties in south-western Pennsylvania. Our mission is to feed people in need and mobilize our community to eliminate hunger. Our vision is a hunger-free southwestern Pennsylvania.
I'm a member of the Nutrition Education team at Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. I am running because I am constantly inspired by the people that I work with, at the Food Bank and in the community who believe that every man, woman, and child has a right to nutritious food. I am running for the 10,000 families who get fresh produce every month at GPCFB's Produce to People distributions. I am running to close the meal gap. I am running for my friends and neighbors who utilize and support the resources of Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. I am running for 2,000 meals. It is an incredible thing to be inspired every day you come to work, I want to carry this inspiration with me out onto the pavement!
Sharing my love of healthy food has always been my passion, but minimizing the impact of food insecurity is my purpose. Thanks for your support!
