Food drive will benefit Brashear Food Pantry


The food pantries operated by The Brashear Association will once again benefit from the Curves Food Drive.

Nationally, Curves has held its food drive for nine years; Brashear has worked with the local Curves studio for the past three years. The national drive collected 11 million pounds of food last year.

According to Tara Madoni, the coordinator of food pantry services at Brashear, the Curves drive fills an important gap.

“The holiday season places real demands on our two food pantries; we distribute food to hundreds of low income people and our resources are stretched. The Curves food drive helps us re-stock and continue to maintain a high quality of service,” Ms. Madoni said.

During the collection drive, Curves will waive its normal service fee for any new member who brings in a bag on non-perishable groceries and joins from March 1-10. Other people who wish to donate can drop off non-perishable items at the South Side Curves, 2302 Jane Street, Monday through Saturday during business hours throughout the month of March.

The Brashear Association is a United Way agency. Its food pantries received support from the Hunger Trust Fund of the City of Pittsburgh, administered by Pittsburgh Community Services. For information, call 412-431-2236.
