PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — With summer approaching, and school ending, many low-income kids will be at risk of hunger.

KDKA-TV is teaming up with Citizens Bank Foundation, and Giant Eagle to host a “Feed the Kids” summer telethon to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

On Wednesday, May 29, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. volunteers from Giant Eagle and Citizens will answer phones and take donations for the food bank.

Citizens Bank Foundation will also match donations, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000.

Continuing hard times persist for many families; the Food Bank is serving 1,000-2,000 new households in our region every month.

The added stress of children going hungry in the summer makes this a time for the Food Bank must collect, purchase and distribute as much extra food as possible.
