Hunger Services // Nourishing Body and Spirit
EECM reaches out to the hundreds of people living in Pittsburgh’s East End communities who don’t know where their next meal is coming from, from infants and children to a growing number of seniors.
I’ve come to realize that you can’t do it all by yourself. Things can be going great, but then you lose your husband or you get sick and then who are you going to depend on? It’s been such a blessing to get meals from EECM.
HOME-DELIVERED MEALS prepares and delivers nutritious meals to frail or homebound residents every weekday. Besides healthy meals, recipients can look forward to a friendly visit, and family members can be assured that someone is checking on their loved ones.
Service areas include East Liberty, Friendship, Garfield, Larimer, and Lincoln-Lemington. Meals are prepared and delivered out of the kitchen at Community House, largely through the efforts of a dedicated volunteer pool.
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 on Harvard Street. It is open from 10:00 to 11:15 am and 1:00 to 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The Pantry serves residents in zip codes 15206, 15224, 15232, and 15217.
The COMMUNITY KITCHEN serves hot lunches every Monday through Friday, from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm. This community meal is provided free of charge to all who are in need, although donations are welcomed. The Community Kitchen is located at Community House and diners can enter through the Community Connections double-door entrance next to the parking lot.
