Brewster Partners with Greater Pittsburgh, Westmoreland County Food Banks to Expand Reach

food bankState Sen. Jim Brewster announced today that he has partnered with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and the Westmoreland County Food Bank to reach more citizens in need.

“We’ve joined with area food banks to expand information availability and develop greater access to food for those in need,” Brewster said.  “Information about the food banks and locations of their services in our district are on our website and staff at my permanent and satellite offices will help facilitate contact.”

Brewster said that in addition to the information portals on his website and direct contact with food bank clients at his district offices, he is planning on having outreach services at Produce to People (via the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank) and Operation Fresh (Westmoreland County Food Bank) events.  These events provide direct access to fresh produce.
