You can use your car to serve your community and help neighbors in need. Rescue 412 gives drivers a way to give back by helping to eliminate food waste. Drivers redirect unsellable yet fresh, healthy food to those who are food insecure. All you have to do is download the app. It’s called Food Rescue Hero on iTunes and 412 Food Rescue Volunteer on Google Play. Emergency Food Rescue Hero: Want to select exactly when you serve? This volunteer opportunity sends you notifications of food rescues directly on your smartphone. If you accept a rescue, just follow the app’s prompts to immediately pick up and drop off ad hoc food donations. Designated Food Rescue Hero: Want a set schedule? Volunteer for reoccurring rescues on the same day each week and same time. You’re responsible for communicating your completed rescue and providing at least 24-hours’ notice if you’re unavailable. Not located in the 412? No problem! You can still rescue food from grocery stores and other distribution sites. 412 Food Rescue is expanding and bringing efforts to Beaver, Butler, Westmoreland, Fayette and Washington counties with the launch of 724 Food Rescue. Since the launch of 412 Food Rescue, nearly two million pounds of good food has been saved from going to waste in Allegheny County.
