Last night, East End Cooperative Ministry (EECM) learned of a water advisory affecting our neighborhood. Over 100,000 Pittsburgh residents are currently under this advisory and in an abundance of caution are being asked to flush and boil water before drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation. EECM took immediate action to ensure that our services remain open, accessible, and safe for our community. Our community lunch is available as normal, packed in bags with fresh bottled water for anyone in need. We thank the volunteers every day, but especially today to ensure uninterrupted service to our community.

East End Cooperative Ministry is pleased to be partnering with Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to distribute clean water to those in need. We will be working together to ensure access to clean water to the affected neighborhoods and anyone in need is encouraged to utilize this resource. EECM will be accepting donations of bottled water from anyone with the ability to give. We will be open for both collection and distribution this weekend, February 2-5, 2017 at the following times: Thursday- Friday from 8:30AM-4:30PM and 7:00-9:00PM & Saturday-Sunday from 10:00AM-4:00PM. Additionally, EECM is offering free community meals this Saturday and Sunday, February 4-5, from 12:00-1:00PM. It is our mission and 47 year legacy to respond to community needs with opportunities and resources.

The community kitchen serves hot lunches every Monday through Friday, from 12:15 to 1:00PM. This community meal is provided free of charge to all who are in need, although donations are welcomed! Anyone in need of a meal, clean water, or more information is welcomed to join us.

Location: Collection and distribution will both be available on the loading dock on Harvard Street. The Community Kitchen and free meals are available through Entrance G next to the parking lot. (6140 Station Street).
