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 opportunity to experience the joy that comes with giving. Relationship is the key to pulling through, and we’re here to help.
AUDREY GUZEK | 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.
WANT TO BE A PART OF HELPING OUR CITY?
As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, many of our neighbors and communities struggle with food insecurity. Food insecurity is defined as the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Job loss, unexpected bills, and other variables outside of one’s control can suddenly force a family to have to choose between buying food and paying bills. We see this need across our city more than ever, and we want to help!
We purposely work closely with community members and leaders that have personal relationships with many 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.
If you would like to be a part of supporting this ongoing project to fight food insecurity in our city, you can join The Supply, our monthly giving community.
