Produce to People is a program of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and distributes produce and other grocery items to at-need families on a monthly basis. AVAC will be sponsoring distributions in the Allegheny Valley area on the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month. Anyone who financially qualifies is welcome. To qualify for the distribution, your total household income should be at or below 150% of poverty level – or simply have a need. No proof of income is required, participants simply self-declare their income.
Please bring a box, a wheeled cart, or durable bags to each distribution. Often, you will walk away with over 54 pounds of food!!! Also, please dress appropriately for standing outside for more than an hour.
ALSO!!! We are in need of 35-40 volunteers each month to set-up, distribute food and register & assist participants. Total time commitment is anticipated to be approximately 4 hours once a month. Set-up will begin at 4:30 p.m.
A GREAT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUTH GROUPS, GIRL SCOUTS, BOY SCOUTS, BIBLE STUDY GROUPS, ETC…….!!!!!
