Greater Pittsburgh food bank debuts ‘The Food Podcast’
The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is raising its voice in its quest to quash hunger.
“The Food Podcast” will be a weekly installment on the TribLIVE Podcast Network and shared on TribLIVE.com.
“Our mission to end hunger and food insecurity won’t happen overnight, but this platform gives us the opportunity to promote our mission by educating the public on the need to help our neighbors in need,” said Brian Gulish, vice president of marketing and communications for the food bank. “We are excited to launch this podcast, which will not only highlight our mission to end hunger and food insecurity in southwestern Pennsylvania, but also elevate our efforts to break down the barriers that exist separating people from food.”
The nonprofit food bank distributes more than 35 million meals annually across 11 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania. One in 7 people and 1 in 5 children are food insecure in southwestern Pennsylvania, according to the food bank.
The debut episode of the podcast, sponsored by Clearview Federal Credit Union, features an interview with food bank CEO Lisa Scales.
“Where we are today is the most exciting time to be engaged with the food bank,” Scales said. “We are in a time of significant transformation both in terms of the type of food we distribute and the type of services that we’re providing to families and individuals who are food insecure.”
