WHY MISSIONS?

I don’t know about you, but when I hear the word “project,” I think of some things around the house that I may or may not get done this weekend. We want to take a more serious approach to the things that we decide to tackle as an organization. It is truly our “Mission” to see them completed, and completed with excellence! Take a look below at the current missions we are working on!

Mission: Pittsburgh aims to connect people, communities, and businesses so that they may receive care, food, and support as well as give it.

We’re in uncertain times, and we want to connect community and individual needs to a source of overflow, as well as the opportunity to experience the joy that comes with giving. Relationship is the key to pulling through, and we’re here to help.

AUDREY KORZI - DIRECTOR

Audrey is a life-long Pittsburgher with a passion for the city, surrounding neighborhoods, and people. With a B.S. in Developmental Psychology and an M.Ed. in Instruction and Learning, her focus in all areas of work leans into growth, connection and relationship. She was given a vision for a city connected so tightly that not one person is left behind. This starts with connecting people to people and sharing love through action. Both Audrey and her fiancé Nick care deeply about food, creativity and aesthetic comfort. Their goal is to create atmospheres that enhance community through food, conversation, creation and healthy minds and bodies.

READY TO HELP THE STEEL CITY?

Our work in Pittsburgh communities began during the Covid crisis in 2020.  Our partners were relaying the strong needs of Food Insecurity in their areas, and we went to work to address it.  From 2020 through the Spring of 2021, we worked tirelessly to provide food to areas that were receiving little to no help.  We closed out the summer of 2021 with our Family Garden Program, which begins to address the long term needs of the communities we serve. 

 

We purposely work closely with community members and leaders that have relationships with families and individuals in their communities. Because of that connection to the community, our partners are able to identify and work with the people that need it most and walk alongside them in more ways than just providing for the immediate physical need.

 

This fall, we will be announcing our newest initiatives.  We have spent the summer talking with our partners, listening to what they are saying, and working with them to plan out what is most needed.  We can’t wait to show you what is next!!  Pay attention here and on our Socials to stay informed on what we are doing!
