This food drive will benefit the food pantries at Hugh’s Kitchen (Hugh Lane Wellness Foundation) and Allies! These food pantries serve countless LGBTQ+ folks within our community each week and are a crucial resource for those facing food insecurity in Pittsburgh. The Pride Food Drive will take place at Aslin Beer Company in the Strip District, Pittsburgh from 6–8pm. Feel free to swing by anytime between 6–8pm. We will be socializing and completing a small volunteer project on-site at Aslin as you drop off your donations for Hugh Lane & Allies!
