PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank received a donation Thursday that will serve about 7,500 people.

Dietz and Watson donated 9,000 pounds of food as part of a promotion last fall with Giant Eagle.

The food bank's Sharla Erwin Buncher says the meats and cheeses they are receiving are an important donation.

“Meat donations are in particular one of the things that are really valuable to families that we serve,” said Buncher.

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food bank serves nearly 35 million meals a year through nearly 400 member agencies in 11 counties.
