PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Dunkin' is stepping up to help western Pennsylvania food banks this month.

On September 18, the restaurant chain will donate $1 from all espresso drinks sold in their stores or in their drive-thru to help area food banks.  Money raised will benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, Greater Washington Community Food Bank and Westmoreland County Food Bank.

“The need for food assistance in our region is unlike anything we’ve experienced in the past,” said Jennifer Zgurich, Director of Corporate and Community Giving at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. “We are so thankful for Dunkin’s efforts to help our neighbors facing food insecurity. Every $1 donated through this promotion could provide up to 5 meals for our neighbors. Pittsburgh is a generous community and I know that we can come together to ensure all of our neighbors have access to enough food.”

The Matcha Latte, Chai Latte and espresso shots are excluded from the campaign.

Dunkin' will also donate $1 to the Dunkin' Joy in Childhood Foundation for each gift card purchased on this website during the month of September.

The foundation provides hunger relief grants to communities.
