Dietz & Watson Inc., a Philadelphia deli meats and cheese company, has packed up 9,000 pounds of food for donation to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Foodbank.

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Giant Eagle are gearing up for Fall Food Share, the region’s largest food and funds drive.

The Fall Food Share will take place Oct. 24 through Nov. 27 at participating Giant Eagle locations. Details are shared during the third episode of the Food Podcast.

“This is an opportunity, every year, for us to extend our reach (to) team members and customers that shop, to invite them to participate and join us in supporting the community together,” said Jannah Jablonowski, public relations specialist for Giant Eagle. “We feel really passionate about getting in (the communities) and helping everybody to put food on the table.”

Shoppers at participating Giant Eagle locations are asked to make a monetary or food donation at the register. All monetary and food donations stay in the counties where the donation is made.

“No person or family should go without food, especially during the holiday season,” said Brian Gulish, vice president of marketing and communications at the food bank. “Fall Food Share not only helps us both financially and securing food donations, it also provides an added opportunity to educate and create awareness for hunger and food insecurity in our region.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
