City and Partners Distribute 4,600 Meals to Children and Seniors

PITTSBURGH, PA (April 10, 2020) With assistance from the Salvation Army, Parkhurst Dining and Eat'n Park, the City of Pittsburgh Department of Parks and Recreation distributed 4,611 meals to children and seniors this week, up from 2,813 last week.

The surge in meal distribution was largely due to the Pittsburgh Public Schools being on spring break this week.

Total meals distributed to children: 1078

Total meals distributed to seniors: 1813 

Additionally, both Salvation Army locations (in Homewood and Westside) have distributed approximately 1600 meals, 80 meals were taken to the Light of Life mission and 40 were distributed to Operation Safety Net. All of these meals were generously made possible by Parkhurst Dining. All meals inclusive of Salvation Army and other sites mentioned above totaled 4,611 meals for children and seniors for the week.
