About 412 Food Rescue: Driven by the belief that good food belongs to people, not landfills, 412 Food Rescue launched in Pittsburgh, PA in March 2015 to divert fresh food from getting wasted to people facing food insecurity. Today it’s the largest volunteer food rescue organization in the country with a growing community of 20,000+ volunteers. Since 87% of the food for pick up is fresh, timely delivery is essential. The 412 Food Rescue app makes claiming food rescues easy and convenient, guiding each volunteer every step of the way from pick up to delivery, yielding a 99% service rate by the volunteers, outperforming many commercial delivery services. As of October 2022, our newest endeavor, the Home Delivery Program, has delivered 100K meals directly to the homes of our isolated Pittsburgh neighbors.
In the United States, as much as 40 percent of food produced is wasted, while 1 in 5 people go hungry. To date, 412 Food Rescue has diverted more than 21 million pounds of food bound for the waste stream in Western Pennsylvania, the equivalent of 18 million meals, mitigating 11 million pounds of CO2 emissions in the process. On a monthly basis, the organization works with 295 food retailers and 457 nonprofit partners. 412 Food Rescue is powered by thousands of volunteers and Food Rescue Hero®, the only food recovery platform purposefully designed to make greater impact, together.
