Back in a jiffy!
The Allegheny Valley Association of Churches is the northern most distribution point for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Each month we serve no less than 250 households through our regular food bank distribution of fresh and non-perishable foods. Additionally we serve no less than 350 families through the Produce to the People monthly distribution. AVAC is also a supply site for emergency food assistance for those who find themselves in an emergency food shortage in our four-county service area. In June of this year we purchased the property next to our current food bank with the goal of increasing our fresh food and dairy distribution. We have the real estate and building. We have the volunteers necessary to carry out our goal. We have the commitment of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to receive additional fresh produce. We have a commercial appliance supplier who has helped us determine our capacity needs. What we don't have is the refrigeration and coolers necessary to bring this plan to fruition. Once we are successful in equipping the additional building we will then be able to initiate a Garden-To-Table program to receive produce donations from our 50 member churches and the additional organizations and businesses that support us with non-perishable items. We firmly believe that fresher is better, both in taste and in nutrition.
