Although the dependency on food supplies has decreased for many people who returned to work during the pandemic, there is still a significant need for food from the pantries, according to a food distribution coordinator in Alle Kiski Valley.
“We helped about 350 families each week during the pandemic,” said Michelle Bock, who coordinates distribution operations for Feeding the Flock Ministries on Nixon Road in Harmar. “Our numbers are falling, but we still get between 200 and 250 families a week fetching food, so the need is still great.”
The food distributed by the nonprofit ministry comes from the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and other donations.
The organization relies on volunteers to sort, pack and load food into vehicles.
More information about the pantry can be found online at www.feedingtheflock.org.
The pantry welcomes volunteers and donations to support their efforts.
