We offer supplemental food and the supportive services needed
to regain stability and self-sufficiency.
Since our inception, the Squirrel Hill Community Food Pantry has
provided a safety net to the hungry and food insecure in the 15217
zip code area without regard to race, color, religion, ancestry,
national origin, place of birth, sex, sexual orientation, familial
status, age, handicap or disability. Our goal is to ensure
food security and help individuals achieve as much self-sufficiency
and independence as possible. We do so by supplying emergency and
supplemental food and direct social service and resource
coordination, often acting as an entry point to other needed
social, psychological, employment and government services.
With the assistance of an army of committed community volunteers
and the support of a cadre of donors and other partners, we are
privileged to serve those who do not have enough resources to feed
themselves and their families.

For those who are kosher, the Va’ad HaRabanim of
Pittsburgh advises SHCFP with respect to the kosher food
certification necessary to properly serve Pantry clients who keep
kosher. Because we are the only food pantry in
Southwestern Pennsylvania committed to meeting the needs of those
who keep kosher homes, SHCFP also serve those outside the 15217 zip
code area who qualify for food assistance and require kosher
