The Squirrel Hill Community Food Pantry’s Food of the Month for July is canned fruit. A Pantry staple, canned fruit can be eaten as a snack, part of a meal or as a dessert. Kosher canned pineapples, peaches and mandarin oranges are popular with Pantry clients, but any additional varieties will increase the number of choices available. Also, the Pantry is accepting extra garden produce. The Pantry will accept whole unprocessed produce throughout the season. For food-safety reasons, the Pantry cannot accept sliced fruits or vegetables or home-canned products.

The Squirrel Hill Farmers’ Market has launched a program with Weinberg Terrace to help make it easier for residents/seniors to shop.
