Media Partner:

Thank you for your outstanding generosity! We asked for your help to address the hunger crisis in our community and Pittsburgh responded with a tremendous outpouring of charitable support.

A total of $617,804 was raised during the four-week appeal that ran between December 10, 2013 and January 7, 2014, including matching funds provided by The Pittsburgh Foundation. Almost 1,400 individual donations were received from families and individuals – including the Foundation’s donors – together with companies and organizations.

All contributions have gone to local food banks and food pantries to help put food on the tables of many thousands of families and individuals during this holiday season.

Thank you Pittsburgh for your generous support in addressing this most essential of human needs.
