We throw away a third of the food we produce. Meanwhile, 1 in 7 goes hungry. And for families with children and female-headed households, many more experience hunger.
412 Food Rescue's mission is to prevent viable food from entering the waste stream. We rescue food from retailers that are healthy and fresh, but unsellable and deliver it where it can help fill the gap experienced by so many of our neighbors.
Our corps of #foodrescueheroes give their time and resources to transport food between our donors and nonprofit partners. From March 2015 to July 2016, we have rescued over 625,000 pounds of healthy food from going to landfills to feeding those who are hungry.
Join the 412 Food Rescue 2017 Pittsburgh Marathon Team and be part of the solution to end waste and end hunger!
