For more than 30 years, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank has provided nourishment to thousands of families in low-income communities. In the 2010–2011 fiscal year, the organization distributed more than 27 million pounds of food to 11 area counties through outlets such as food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and Meals on Wheels. The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank serves a range of populations, including residents in both rural and urban areas, and 37,000 of the people fed by Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank are under the age of 18.
After tracking attendance patterns at several local low-income elementary schools, workers at Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank discovered that many students who arrived late had not eaten at home and missed cafeteria breakfast at school. To prevent the consequences of inadequate food intake, such as learning and development issues, the organization established a breakfast-bags program that provides students who miss their school’s cafeteria breakfast with healthy, protein-laden food. Each breakfast bag contains at least four stomach-filling items, such as a cereal box, fruit cup, applesauce, and peanut butter and crackers.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank provide breakfast to local schoolchildren. If G-Team members raise $350, then Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank can provide 175 breakfast bags for late students who miss their school's cafeteria breakfast. Each additional $10 raised will purchase five more breakfast bags.
