envelopeTo the University community:

The Pitt Partnership for Food drive has been extended through Friday, May 31.

Each year for the past 27 years, the Pitt community has helped fight hunger through the Pitt Partnership for Food drives. Faculty, staff and students participate in large numbers, donating food and money during the drive, as well as by volunteering at the distribution center throughout the year. Our partner, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, relies on our support in order to supply soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters and other outlets throughout southwestern Pennsylvania.  This network includes the Oakland Food Pantry, which was established as a Day of Caring project by the Pitt community and now serves over 600 of our neighbors in need each month.

Please consider donating at one of our many drop-off sites at major campus buildings, or conveniently online at

A most important fact is that every dollar donated to the food bank helps provide five meals to those in need, and with the chancellor’s offer to match each contribution, every dollar donated through the online drive is doubled and will help provide 10 meals! This is a wonderful opportunity to double your donation dollars, or to donate cereals, canned or bottled foods, as well as sealed kitchen and laundry products.

Please call community relations at 412/624-7709 or email if you need any additional information.

Thank you for your action in impacting hunger in our region!
