412 Food Rescue: Volunteers Needed!

Categories: Community Voices, Food for Thought, Social Action

Got a free minute to help stamp out hunger? (Well, actually maybe 60 of them?) Our Food for Thought initiative continues as 412 Food Rescue is looking for partners to help expand their mission in the South Hills. It’s a simple concept – food that will otherwise go to waste is rescued and delivered to those who can use it.

Want to hear something amazing? South Hills Trader Joe’s is able to donate an average of 40 CASES of food a day. All that is needed is 2-3 volunteers a day to pick up food around 8:30-9:00 am, Monday through Friday and deliver it to a designated location. Volunteer weekly, monthly or even occasionally – just volunteer!

Email Sheryl Cohen (or message Sheryl or Stacey Reibach on Facebook) for more info.
