Sorry if this hit your box unintentionally. It appears Google+ events has some bugs.

Hats off to the driver of this WFP food truck who braved a terrifying drive across one of the worst roads in Afghanistan to reach a remote mountain village with food.

Story
Tagline
"Helping our neighbors and our environment, one tote bag at a time."
Introduction
The Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project was established in 2011 to connect the region's tote bags with the more than 122,000 neighbors relying on our food pantries. In collaboration with Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and more than 2 dozen other organizations, we aim to improve access to food by making it easier to transport groceries home from the food pantries, reduce dependency on disposable bags and free money up to be redirected to food.  

In our first six months, we have collected more than 7200 bags, established 17 permanent drop-off spots,  collaborated in 40 tote bag drives and prevented more than 21,000 disposable bags from being used.
