Community Nutrition Services

From infants and children to a growing number of seniors, EECM reaches out to the hundreds of people living in Pittsburgh’s communities who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

The FOOD PANTRY is an assistance program for those in immediate need of food. In addition to providing emergency groceries and supplies, we also offer information on assistance programs, and access to social service agencies and other appropriate programs. EECM operates the second largest food pantry in Pittsburgh.

The Food Pantry is located at Community House and clients can enter through the single-door marked Food Pantry, Entrance C on Harvard Street. It is open from 9:30-11:30am and 1:00-3:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The Pantry serves residents in zip codes 15201, 15208, 15206, 15217, 15224, 15232 and 15221 [East Hills/Wilkinsburg Residents Only*].
