We know that hunger may be only one of many issues you’re facing. Our social service and critical needs coordinator will work with you to identify and solve emergency situations first, and then will work with you to address the underlying issues of your food insecurity and find long-term solutions. If you are in need of emergency financial assistance, we will help you...either through JF&CS's SOS Pittsburgh Fund or other community resources.

What do we need this month?
March is our time to prepare for Passover distribution, and we ask that you support this effort by donating kosher for Passover foods. We provide our clients with the Seder staples, but any other foods that you enjoy during Passover are welcome donations. Not sure what else the Pantry needs? Refer to our Pantry Shopping List.
