NHCO is proud to operate three food pantries in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh (Allison Park, Millvale and Bellevue), providing food to nearly 700 families each month. We are a member agency of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. A trip to our pantry (once a month) provides approximately five days worth of food, so it is supplemental to a family or individual’s normal grocery order. Senior citizens may qualify for extra food through Senior Commodities, and a gluten-free section is available.

SHIM’s fully stocked food pantries help our neighbors put health meals on the table. They have three sites: SHIM Center at Bethel Park, SHIM’s Family Center and Baldwin United Presbyterian Church. SHIM’s food pantries serve people who reside in the following South Hills neighborhoods: Baldwin-Whitehall, Bethel Park, South Park, Keystone Oaks, Mt. Lebanon and Upper St. Clair school districts.
