July news from the Squirrel Hill Food Pantry

Hillel Jewish University Center of Pittsburgh Donates Food and Money

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to the students of the Hillel Jewish University Center of Pittsburgh for their exceptional contribution to the Squirrel Hill Food Pantry. Their selflessness and dedication have made a significant impact on the lives of countless individuals in need.

The Hillel Jewish University Center of Pittsburgh students, driven by their desire to make a difference, gathered together and organized an impressive food drive that resulted in the collection of almost 100 pounds of food donations and an astounding funded amount of $2,998 to the JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry.  With their unwavering commitment to helping those less fortunate, they have proven that a group of dedicated individuals can bring about positive change within their community.

The Squirrel Hill Food Pantry, a vital resource for individuals and families facing food insecurity, has been the beneficiary of the student’s efforts. The pantry plays a crucial role in ensuring that no one in the community goes hungry, and the students’ donations have further strengthened its ability to fulfill this mission.

As we reflect on the incredible impact made by the Hillel Jewish University Center of Pittsburgh students, we are reminded of the profound impact that each individual can have when they choose to lend a helping hand.


The Squirrel Hill Food Pantry clients receive tomato and basil plants!

These plants will provide clients with fresh produce and the opportunity to grow their own food. The ability to grow one’s own produce is a valuable skill that can be shared with friends and family. It can also be a source of pride for those who plant their own food. A really fun summer project! 

We encourage all of our clients to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and to learn more about the benefits of growing their own food. We appreciate Scott’s generous donation of these plants and his dedication to serving our community.
