Doorstep Delivery

To help ensure all of our neighbors have enough to eat, our Doorstep Delivery program is bringing groceries to the most vulnerable people. Doorstep Delivery works by utilizing volunteers, as well as professional delivery and transportation services to bring a 25-pound box of shelf-stable food right to the recipients door. While the contents of the boxes may vary, items in these boxes may include:

  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Juice and/or shelf-stable milk
  • Starches such as potatoes, pasta and pasta sauce or pancake mix
  • Proteins such as peanut butter, beans, beef stew or canned chicken or tuna

Do I qualify?

Doorstep Delivery is for individuals who cannot access food assistance through a pantry or direct distribution site because they do not have access to a vehicle and/or are unable to attend distributions due to health concerns or other sensitive factors.

Is there a cost to this program?

No, this is a free service provided by the Food Bank.

How is the food delivered?

  • The Food Bank is working with volunteers and professional delivery and transportation services to provide food boxes to your doorstep.
  • For the health and safety of delivery providers and recipients, all drivers are required to wear face coverings and gloves.
  • A 25-pound box of shelf-stable food is placed on your doorstep for you to pick up once the driver leaves. Drivers are not permitted to enter the premises of any home or apartment complex.

When can I expect the boxes to be delivered?

  • This service is NOT same-day guaranteed. As we build out this program, we will be serving requests in the order they are received.
  • There is no set frequency for these deliveries. As the Food Bank continues to develop this program, we hope to be able to provide a set schedule in the coming weeks and months. We are working our best to match drivers with individuals in need based on their location.

How do I schedule a delivery?

Individuals in need of home delivery food assistance should call the Food Bank at 412-460-3663 ext. 655. The Food Bank’s COVID-19 concierge team is fielding calls from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. We are currently experiencing a high number of calls for this new program. If a member of the concierge team is unavailable, please leave a message with your name and phone number and a member of our team will reach out to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
