Gateway Health to Deliver Donated New Kitchen Utensils to AHN Healthy Food Center

Monday, October 29, 2018

WHAT: 
Since its opening last spring, many patients have gained access at the AHN Healthy Food Center to nutritious foods which help them to better manage their health conditions. One challenge faced by some, however, is the lack of kitchen utensils necessary for preparing their meals. That’s why Gateway Health recently held a ‘kitchen utensils and supplies drive’ at its headquarters in Downtown Pittsburgh. Today, representatives from Gateway Health will visit the Healthy Food Center to deliver the hundreds of items donated by employees.

WHEN: 
Monday, October 29, 2018; 10:00 AM

WHO:
Regina Vercilla, Vice President of Clinical Strategy and Innovation, Gateway Health
Jessica Cromer, Executive Director, HealthChoices, Gateway Health
Ron Andro, President, West Penn Hospital
Colleen Ereditario, Manager, AHN Healthy Food Center
Stuart Fisk, CRNP, Director, AHN Center for Inclusion Health
Annette Fetchko, Regional Director, AHN Center for Inclusion Health
Kate Hancock, Community Affairs Analyst, Highmark Health

WHERE: 
AHN Healthy Food Center
4921 Mend Way
Pittsburgh, PA  15224

WHY: 
Food insecurity affects more than 350,000 people in our region and is known to have far reaching impacts on a person’s overall health and wellbeing. The Healthy Food Center aims to not only curb hunger, but to link food and medicine so that patients can better manage their health conditions and lead more fulfilling lives. With a shared commitment to actively supporting the needs of society’s most vulnerable, AHN is extremely grateful for the support of Gateway Health.
