Amanda Dressel Local Food Banks April 25, 2005 Local food banks in Pittsburgh became more popular in the 70's when the steel mills began to close, and families had very low income, or none at all. So this is when the “War on Poverty” began, which is basically saving food instead of wasting it, and distributing it to others in need. Pittsburgh's food bank startedsmall, in rooms above the Jubilee Soup Kitchen in the Hill district, but soon expanded and moved to the South Side. The Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank receives it’s goods from many different places. Some are Second Harvest, Giant Eagle, Local food drives (Boy Scouts, mail carriers, church organizations), Government surplus, and more. As this food is collected, it is recorded and sorted into groups. Some food comes in large boxes and must be broken into smaller parts. This is all people work and the food bank relies on volunteers. The minimum age for volunteering is 12. School groups, handicapped groups, senior citizens are all the Food Bank volunteers. Last year, over 7,000 volunteers donated 39,000 hours of their time was recorded. This Food Bank serves over 350 agencies, soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, after school programs, personal care homes, senior programs, and more. The food bank also provides nutrition education in some of these neighborhoods. Now, I learned the significance of food banks and how the help out so many people less fortunate than myself.

~As Lovers Go~
I'll be true, I'll be useful, I'll be cavalier, I'll be yours my dear. I'll belong to you. If you just let me through. This is easy as lovers go. So dont complicate it by hesitating. This is wonderful as loving goes. This is tailor-made, what's the sense in waiting?
~No Seatbelt Song~
So take me and break me, and make me strong like you. I'll be forever grateful to, this and you. It's only you, beautiful, or I don't want anyone. If I can choose, It's only you. Fix me to a chain around your neck, Wear me like a nickel Even new wine served in old skins cheapens the taste, I shot the pilot, now I'm begging you to fly this for me, I'm here for you to use, broken and bruised, Do you understand? It's only you, beautiful
For You To Notice..
I'm starting to fashion an idea in my head, where I would impress you... with every single word I said. would come out insightful, or brave, or smooth, or charming, and you'd want to call me.. and I would be there every time you'd need me I'd be there every time... but for now I'll look so longingly waiting... for you to want me, for you need me, for you to notice me.
This Disaster
Are you aware of how much you complicate me? and are you aware your words suffocate me? and don't deny, you're talking behind my back to your friends and don't deny, one day you'll need me. all my life I've been looking for the answers to the questions you never asked and we never planned on this disaster when will I let it go? so incomplete, your stare is cold unlike anything I've ever seen. so incomplete, your body is tired and falling apart at the seams I won't deny I took the part in never wanting you back I don't deny one day you'll need me.

"I've learned to never underestimate . . the impossible."
