Our Mission

 

Swissvale Cares, Inc. manages the Swissvale Community Food Pantry (SCFP). We are an agency member of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank (GPCFB)

We distribute monthly allotments of food to needy Swissvale individuals and families. The food we distribute is provided to us by public and private funds.

We also utilize the 412 Food Rescue to supplement distributions. We are also the recipient of regular food drives by local boys & girl scout troops, girls scouts, church groups, and post office collection drives.

Our commitment is to provide a volunteer staff to meet the needs of our community. We have done this and will continue to do this with regularly scheduled distributions as well as emergency distributions, as the need arises.

in the past, during distribution days we have partnered with other service organizations like the Mon Valley Initiative, YWCA, United Health Care, CCAC Boyce Campus and others to provide much needed information on programs and services available to our clients.
