Beginning October 18 and running through November 21, Fall Food Share, the region’s seasonal food and funds drive will focus on ending hunger in our region. The drive will operate in 10 counties across western Pennsylvania and one county in West Virginia. Shoppers at participating Giant Eagle locations are asked to make a monetary or food donation at the register. All monetary and food donations stay in the counties where the donation was made. Shoppers are asked to only donate household and nonperishable food items in boxes, cans or plastic containers. No glass packaging please. Participating food banks gratefully acknowledge the support of Fall Food Share sponsors Giant Eagle and Citizens Bank.
