Right here in the South Hills, people are hungry.

Last year, we served more than 4,000 neighbors at our three food pantries.
And yet, we still aren’t serving everyone in need.

SHIM’s Sack Hunger, Pack Hope is an effort to mobilize the community around hunger and poverty in the South Hills. This year, we’re challenging congregations, community groups, businesses, schools and caring  community members to help us raise funds and food to support the growing number of neighbors in need.

Stories of Hope

Thanks to your support, when a family turns to SHIM for food, they receive much more.

Once a client, now a donor

On a recent typical day at SHIM, a visitor arrived with a generous $500 donation on a cashier’s check. We thanked her and asked her name. “All you need to know,” she said with smile, “is that I was once a client here.” Your generosity powers financial stability.

A lift up is all they needed

A local family came to SHIM after a husband lost his job. Just a few months later, we received a note from his wife explaining her husband found a job with regular pay, and they can now afford groceries. She thanked us, but we thank YOU, for helping this family get back on their feet during a trying time.
