PITTSBURGH, Pa., Nov. 22, 2019 – Mountain View Apartments in Pittsburgh this week hosted a “Feed the Children – No Hunger Holidays” event spearheaded by Councilwoman Theresa Kail-Smith of the Pittsburgh City Council and event partners Feed Our Students and TrueSense. The community engagement program marked the first time Pittsburgh District 2 has been chosen as a Feed the Children food distribution site.

All families residing at Mountain View Apartments, and nearly 120 families with students attending the adjacent Pittsburgh Langley K-8 School, received vouchers for a 25-pound box of food and a 15-pound box of essentials, as well as books and additional donated items. More than 400 vouchers were distributed.
