The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is opening two pantries in the Mont Valley this week.
The Mont Valley Youth & Teen Association Pantry at 160 Thompson Ave in Donora will be open to people and families in the district and surrounding communities every third Monday of the month from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The other pantry in Monongahela, usually held as a drive-up distribution at Noble Dick Aquatorium, will be relocated to the First United Methodist Church at 430 W. Main St., Monongahela. The pantry is open every third Tuesday of the month from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 4.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. This pantry is open to people in Monongahela, New Eagle, and the surrounding communities.
“Our goal is always to make food as accessible as possible to all of our neighbors,” said Charlese McKinney, director of partner networking programs at Tafel. “As we continue to work toward this goal, we are thrilled that these two agencies are ready and able to rejoin our Washington County food aid network.”
Both pantries resume service this week. You are joining a network of 25 pantries, partners, and programs available to Washington County residents in need of assistance with groceries.
“Donora residents don’t have to leave town to get food,” said Mary Anne Bandalo, director of the Mon Valley Youth and Youth Association. “It’s been about 15 months since a blackboard was available in Donora.”
