The Heinz Influence In Pittsburgh


BRADDOCK, PA – AUGUST 24: Robert Grom, president of Heritage Health Foundation, chats with children at the 4 Kids Early Learning Center August 24, 2004 in Braddock, Pennsylvania. The center is funded mostly by The Heinz Endowments. The average family income of children at the center is about $13,000 a year. The H.J. Heinz Co., based in Pittsburgh, once was one of the former industrial center’s major employers. Now, Heinz’s manufacturing has gone global and the impact on Pittsburgh is less. The Heinz family and its namesake foundation are no longer tied to the company, but their influence lives on, through philanthropy and the involvement of John Kerry’s wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, the widow of the late U.S. Senator H. John Heinz III. (Photo by Chris Hondros/Getty Images)
