Elizabeth Forward School District Virtual Food Drive 2021
In order to continue to support our neighbors who are experiencing food insecurity during these difficult times, we are hosting a virtual food drive! For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can provide up to 5 meals for the children, families and seniors they serve across Southwestern PA. Thank you for your continued support!
Bridget, a student and a bar manager, was laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic. “I’m laid off and I’m actually a student. I’m trying to graduate. I graduate in two weeks and my school is actually the one that told me about this [distribution].” Providing for her daughter and herself is challenging when there is no work, but she is grateful that the drive-up distributions are able to provide a little extra assistance. “It’s to help my daughter and I. It means a lot. We need it to survive and I’m the full-time employee…I support both of us.”
