Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank: The Great Garden Giveaway
The Great Garden Giveaway is a partnership between Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Grow Pittsburgh. The program, in its third year, provides vegetable, fruit and herb seedlings and seeds to people receiving food at the Food Bank’s Produce to People distributions in the Spring. The distributions take place each month and see on average of 500 families.
In 2012, the first year of our partnership, we gave out more than 1600 seedlings to over 832 people at just two distributions. This program provides families with the resources they need to grow some of their own food.
UPMC is proud to help promote Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank’s mission.
