What Is Produce 2 People

Produce to People is a local food distribution sponsored by The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and organized by Fresh Fire Church in Uniontown.  It is held the SECOND THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH at the Fayette County Fair Grounds in Dunbar Township. The program provides supplemental food items to families each month.  Typically families receive about 60 pounds of food each month and includes items such as meat, fresh vegetables and fruit, canned items, dairy and much more and varies each month. 

What Do I Need To Bring

If you are a first-time visitor,
you will need to bring with you a copy of a current utility bill with your name and address on the bill. Acceptable bills include: gas, water, electric, phone, cable, rent receipt or lease.  When you sign up, you will receive a Passcard, which is similar to your Shop' n Save Rewards card or any other department store rewards cards.  You will only need to register once and each month following, you will be able to come through the line and only have to have your card swiped by our scanner.  This process is much more effecient and prevents you from waiting in a long line for an extended period of time. 

Please bring a large box, wheeled cart or laundry basket to put your food in.

**Please Note**

With the Passcard, you will still be able to pick up for 1 other household. However, you must take a Proxy Form to that individual, have that individual fill it out and sign it, and return it the following month with a copy of a current utility bill for that individual. Then, that person can receive the passcard. We will then issue the card for that individual. That individual’s information must be able to be verified by our church staff.  No exceptions will be made.
