Pitt to sponsor food drive

Pitt’s 2005 Partnership for Food Drive will be held throughout April to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

Nonperishable food and household items will be accepted. The most needed food items include baby formula and food, stews, chunky soups, peanut butter, packaged meals, tuna, canned meats and cereals. Items such as paper products, soaps and cleaners also are needed.

The collected items are distributed through a network of local food pantries. The project has no overhead costs since all publicity, printing, packing boxes, bags and staff time are donated.

Last year Pitt’s drive collected more than $4 million worth of food, which provided one month’s allotment of food for those in need.

To request a food pick-up for bulk items, call 412/624-7709.

• William Pitt Union, Fifth Avenue lobby information desk;

• Circulation desks at Hillman and all other Pitt libraries;
