Southwestern Pennsylvania Food Security Partnership

The Southwestern Pennsylvania Food Security partnership emerged from a six month planning process in 2010 generated by the Board of Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. The planning process produced a document – the Comprehensive Plan for Food Security in Southwestern PA that identifies five objectives: 1) increasing access to existing food assistance and resources; 2) increasing public engagement on hunger issues; 3) increasing advocacy to support strong public programs; 4) generating a social service collaborative to address related issues of poverty; 5) sustaining the project in an effective governance and management system. The Food Security partnership, charged with implementing the Plan is now an initiative of Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Its five year mission is to reduce hunger in the 12 county region by at least half. Its fundamental strategy is to recruit organizations from all sectors to work on specific implementation efforts to meet the first four goals.
