Rainbow Kitchen Celebrates 25th Anniversary in Pittsburgh
Date:10/8/2009

During that span, monthly participation in its Food Pantry program has grown by more than 25 percent, the number of daily meals served has increased by nearly 35 percent, and the number of requests for short-term or emergency assistance has more than doubled.

"Rainbow Kitchen has been a strong and reliable source of aid for those in need for 25 years," said Lammie, who was honored by the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals as one of the region's two outstanding volunteer fundraisers for 2008.
