The agency serves Wilkinsburg and the surrounding towns and municipalities and operates both a bricks and mortar pantry at 702-704 Wood Street and a mobile pantry at several hour stops per week in several urban neighborhoods in and around Wilkinsburg. The truck is a 25-foot step van outfitted with shelves and refrigeration and freezer equipment.

Wilkinsburg Community Ministry (WCM) is a non-profit organization focused on providing and sharing food with our neighbors in Wilkinsburg and surrounding communities. We do this primarily through our storefront food pantry where we offer our shoppers dignity through a choice of food, allowing them to select the foods they would like. In addition, we operate a Mobile Food Pantry Рtaking food closer to our customers at times when the storefront is not open. Both programs are possible through our partnership with the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank, 412 Food Rescue,  other local food retailers, and the support of friends, foundations, and corporations.
