During an Olympic year, the passing of the torch unites thousands of runners across thousands of miles within the expansive community of the host nation to achieve a simple, symbolic purpose: To share and then ignite the flame of promise and hope at the biannual Olympic games. At the Westmoreland County Food Bank (WCFB), this is an apt metaphor for the changing of the guard at our executive leadership level this year. Because when that flame is tipped forward to meet the torch of the next bearer, it is implicitly understood the fire will be kept burning, the tradition of the past will inform the journey of the future, and the weight borne previously now rests in equally secure hands.

All of us at the WCFB join with our partners in Feeding America and The United Way to bid fond farewell to former CEO Marlene Kozak, while welcoming new CEO Kris Douglas to our collective mission of support for area families in need.
the passing of the torchceoâ€™s message At the end of 2012, the Westmoreland County Food Bank family was both overjoyed and saddened for the retirement of two of our longest tenured and hardest working employees. Marlene Kozak, our Chief Executive Officer for the past 12 years, announced her intensions in January to retire at the end of 2012. During her tenure, she was directly responsible for many great things happening at our organization. Marlene was hired as CEO in November 2000. Under her leadership, our ability to serve our community has greatly expanded. In fact, we recently ranked third in the nation for providing pounds of food per person in poverty. Fundraising now supports 60% of our operating budget, which was $3.4 million in 2012. We now employ 23 full time staff and engage over 6,000 volunteers to help provide food-assistance to roughly 7,000 households a month. In 2012, those volunteers distributed over 6.8 million pounds of food. In 2009, we launched the Outreach/Expansion Project in Jeannette, which was recognized by Feeding America as the 2010 Agency Capacity Program of the Year. Also in 2010, we were named NonProfit of the Year by the Westmoreland County Chamber of Commerce. In 2011, the Food Bank received certification from the Pennsylvania Association of Non-Profit Organizations (PANO) for achieving excellence in our programs, management practices, fundraising, fiscal management, and ethical practices. In addition, we have also received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator for the past several years. In 2012, our Push Method of Food Distribution was named Distribution Program of the Year by Feeding America. A lot of the credit for these outstanding achievements and for the stellar reputation our organization now enjoys goes to Marlene. Her dedication and passion for taking care of the less fortunate is commendable. We were blessed to have her at the helm of our organization these past years and we wish her only the best in her retirement. She will be truly missed by all! Glenn Cavanaugh also decided to retire at the end of 2012, a second time for him. Glenn came to the Westmoreland County Food Bank in 1999 after retiring from the Derry Area School District as an admired teacher. He was to fill a part time position that quickly evolved into full time and then some. Glenn held the position of Agency Relations Director and was responsible for the formation of many exceptional food pantries and agencies throughout our county. Glenn was also a passionate hunger advocate and a truly caring person. He too will be missed by all and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.
I consider it both an honor and a privilege to take over the helm of the Westmoreland County Food Bank from these two shining examples of great leadership. Today, our organization is truly blessed with passionate employees, dedicated volunteers, and generous donors. All three are important parts of the equation and if you remove any one, we would surely fail in our mission. I feel blessed to be taking over the organization at a time when we are in such good financial shape. Again, this is a testament to Marleneâ€™s leadership. We continue to be good stewards with our donorâ€™s and the publicâ€™s money. I am proud of the fact that 95 cents of every dollar we take in goes back out to help those in need. It is a testament to our efficiency and one of our strongest selling points when it comes to soliciting donations. As we look ahead to 2013 and beyond, I am filled with both excitement and sadness at the same time. I am excited to further develop and refine our programs and services and take them to the next level. I am excited at the prospect of getting out and serving a larger portion of the roughly 40,000 additional food insecure people in our county that have yet to receive our services. I also am excited to work with so many fine people, not just in Westmoreland County, but throughout the State of Pennsylvania, and the Nation as a whole who are trying to address the problem of hunger. I am very saddened however, that an organization such as ours even has to exist in the first place , in one of the richest nations on the planet. It breaks my heart to see so many in need in our communities throughout Westmoreland County. This is especially true when it comes to the children I see standing in line with their parents and grandparents when at a pantry distribution or Operation Fresh Express. We sometimes forget how lucky we are to have enough to eat and a shelter over our heads. A lot of the time, we take for granted just how good we really have it. Seeing hungry children in person can really drive that point home. While we may never be able to completely eliminate hunger, we must do all we can to reduce it as much as possible. Even one person who is hungry is one too many. As long as the need remains, the Westmoreland County Food Bank will continue to be there to help the less fortunate in our community! God Bless you and yours and thank you for your continued support of our organization, it is truly appreciated!
Kris M. Douglas, MBA Chief Executive Officer
packing a mightY punch We’ve packed a lot of power into our punches in the fight against hunger—seeing to it nearly every drop of revenue we receive goes the distance. In fact, ninety-five cents out of every dollar we bring in goes back into the ring to serve area families in need.

food pantry distributioN program The core of Westmoreland County Food Bank's work is to acquire food and household necessities and to distribute it to needy people throughout Westmoreland County. In 2012, WCFB distributed nearly 7 million pounds of food items through a network of 71 partner agencies in Westmoreland County. Partner agencies are primarily comprised of food pantries, which distribute monthly food boxes to eligible recipients through the Food Pantry Distribution Program. Agencies also include community meals/soup kitchens and onsite feeding programs that provide daily or weekly hot meals to recipients. The Food Bank regularly monitors its partner agencies to ensure that food is properly stored, distributed and/or served, and that all client eligibility requirements are met. Approximately 7,000 households are served each month. The Food Bank also functions as a distribution point for other human service agencies to provide information on the services they provide.
donated food drop-offs 27,701 pounds of donated food was collected at the following WCFB Donated Food Drop-off Sites: Belle Vernon Chiropractic Center, Westmoreland Fayette Boy Scouts of America (BSA), Enterprise Rent a Car, Gluten Free Zone in Murrysville, Goodwill of Southwestern PA, Hempfield Twp. Athletic Center, Mastroroccoâ€™s in Derry, Ramada Inn in Greensburg, St. Sebastian, YMCA of Greensburg, St. Sebastian Church in Belle Vernon and WCCC Science Center.
feeding mt. pleasant/scottdale Ending Hunger One Bite at a Time â€Ś In 2011 and 2012, the Mt. Pleasant/Scottdale areas of the county served as the focus of the Food Bankâ€™s outreach and expansion efforts. We have worked closely with the four pantries in the area to assist with capacity development and volunteer support, which included development of overall community partnerships. New marketing methods and materials were implemented with the intention of raising awareness of the Food Bank and its services. During this Project timeframe, an additional 425 households were added to the rolls of the Food Pantry Distribution Program.
Awards/Achievements Consol Energy Community All-Stars The Westmoreland County Food Bank was chosen as one of Consol Energry’s Community All-Stars this past year. WCFB was honored at a luncheon at the Consol Energy Center and also received tickets to a Penguin Game. It was truly a privilege to be recognized.
2012 Feeding America Distribution Program of the Year Recognition for its “Push Method” of food distribution The Westmoreland County Food Bank [WCFB] was named the 2012 Distribution Program of the Year winner at the annual Feeding America Network Summit in Detroit. The award is given to the year’s most outstanding distribution program from the 202 food banks across the nation in the Feeding America network. The Push Method is a radically different, “whole-system” approach to traditional food banking that streamlines the ordering process for WCFB food pantries. This efficient model requires less employees to manage the ordering, picking, and inventory processes, freeing up staff for other duties. “The Westmoreland County Food Bank continues to show why it’s a leader in our Network,” said Vicki Escarra, former President and CEO of Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief charity. “This distribution program award shows the innovation and creativity of the food bank’s staff to help fight hunger in their community.” The Push Method easily allows the Westmoreland County Food Bank to design distributions three months in advance, meaning the smallest food banks can leverage tools like bulk purchasing, collaborative purchasing, and timing of donations.
specialty feeding programs Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) 2012 marks WCFBâ€™s 30th year of sponsorship for the Summer Food Service Program. SFSP is a continuation of the National School Lunch Program with funding provided through the US Department of Agriculture, administered through the PA Department of Education. Each year, when school is not in session, many parents rely on this important program to ensure their children continue to eat healthy meals. For eight weeks each summer, free breakfasts and lunches are served to low-income children at various locations throughout the county. In 2012, the SFSP provided over 23,000 meals to an average of 465 children at 19 sites throughout the county. This program provides proper nutrition and teaches good eating habits to children.
Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)
er Food Service Progra m m Sum C
Each month, the CSFP/ Senior Food Box Program provides approximately 1,500 low-income seniors age 60 and over and WIC Program graduates with food packages designed to provide nutritionally balanced supplements to their monthly food consumption. This program is particularly important to the seniors that participate in that it helps them to maintain proper nutrition to reduce the risk of chronic illness. The commodities provided are canned fruits, vegetables, and meats along with pasta, cereal, milk, juice, and cheese. In 2012, nearly 500,000 pounds of food was distributed to eligible participants.

The Senior Food Box Program would not be successful without the help of the many volunteers who give so generously of their time each month to pack the boxes. Operation Fresh Express (OFE) Operation Fresh Express (OFE) distributions are sponsored by various groups and organizations and are held weekly at locations throughout Westmoreland County. This rapid distribution program held outdoors provides much needed perishable food such as dairy products and fresh produce, that would otherwise be discarded due to being close dated. In 2012, OFE provided over 870,000 pounds of supplemental food to nearly 10,000 households with the help of 1,200 volunteers who assisted with the distributions.

The Super Cupboard Program Through a joint effort between Penn State Nutrition Links and Westmoreland County Food Bank, the Super b o uper Cup ard Program S e Cupboard Program is offered to families with Th children under the age of 18 at various locations throughout Westmoreland County.

food drives Campus Challenge At the end of the spring semester, college campuses throughout Westmoreland County participate in a competition to see which campus can collect the most donated food.

The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg and Seton Hill University, also participated. Overall, 3,014 pounds of food was collected.

special events Hunger Action Month Each September, Feeding America commemorates Hunger Action Month.

Empty Bowl Event The fifth annual Empty Bowl Event was held at St. Bruno’s Parish Hall, Greensburg. Karen Piper and her committee of volunteers worked for over a year to organize this grand event.
