About Kiski Valley Food Bank

Our Mission.
Kiski Valley Food Bank is committed to those who are in need or at risk of hunger by not having or having enough nutritional food for three complete meals a day. As an all-volunteer and independent food bank, we work with our community organizations, churches, businesses, grocery markets and citizens to collect and distribute food each month to individuals and families in the Kiski Valley region. We also provide emergency food to those in need. As part of our mission, we also provide healthy and cost-saving recipes, nutritional information, and education including cost-saving ideas to help families live better.

What We Do.
The Kiski Valley Food Bank, based in Vandergrift, serves the Kiski Valley region just 30 minutes northeast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, covering portions of Westmoreland, Armstrong and Indiana Counties. These communities include the Boroughs of Apollo, Avonmore, East Vandergrift, Hyde Park, Leechburg, North Apollo, Oklahoma, Vandergrift, and, West Leechburg; and, the Townships of Allegheny, Bell, Gilpin, Kiskiminetas, Parks, Upper Burrell (partial), and, Washington. These also include communities within Townships, such as Bagdad, Bell Point, Brownstown, Dime, Edmon, Forks Church, Garvers Ferry, Gosser Hill, Kepple Hill, Kiskimere, Mamont, Maysville, Metcalf, McKean, North Washington, North Vandergrift, Orchard Hills, Perryville, Poke Run, Riverview, Salina, Schenley, Shady Plain, Spring Church, Tinsmill, Truxall, and others.

Who is hungry?
Kiski Valley Food Bank distributed thousands of pounds of food to families beginning in 2008 and continuing through now. The most likely to need food assistance are children, working families, the elderly, the retired, the disabled. Our neighbors who need your help.

Why are people hungry?
Hunger is a growing problem in the United States. Generally children, families or individuals go hungry because their monthly income does not cover basic living costs. These tough ecomomic times mixed with the high cost of housing, health care, childcare and fuel make it difficult for low-income individuals and families to have enough money to pay for proper amounts of food.

We are a streamlined and efficient organization.
Our food collection and distribution process is effective and very personalized. We maintain grateful relationships with a variety of contributing local businesses, organizations and individuals. We distribute food parcels to needy families and individuals. From pickup of contributions to distribution of food parcels our average time is only a few days.
