Food Pantry Collections

Posted on Aug 12, 2012 in Social Justice Activities

Northside Common Ministries (NCM) continues to see more people than ever before in the food pantry. At this time about 600 families come to the pantry each month to receive food. With a 23% increase of families living below the poverty line on the North Side, the need for the pantry is more apparent than ever before.

In the autumn and summer, we collect food for the Northside Common Ministry’s Food Pantry, the largest pantry in the city. Our youth-led Fall 2010  campaign was covered in the Post-Gazette, Youth group delivers donations to North Side food pantry.
