For many decades, the Family Life Center -- in partnership with the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank, and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has provided thousands of nutritional meals to community residents throughout Aliquippa and Beaver County. The Jubilee Dining Room provides needy families and individuals with weekly supplies of groceries and perishables, as well as hot meals during the holidays. In many cases, these meals and distributions are the only source of food for many family low income families and the elderly in the region, and the Family Life Center is grateful to continue to play that role.
