Become a Giving Tuesday Food Rescue Fundraiser

At 412 Food Rescue, we hold a strong belief in the incredible power of community and collective action to address the pressing issues of food waste and food insecurity. That’s why we’re once again teaming up with Give Big Pittsburgh this Giving Tuesday to raise the funds needed to ensure good food goes to people, not landfills. 

We invite you to become a 412 Food Rescue Fundraiser to help create a ripple effect of generosity throughout our community. Because by supporting 412 Food Rescue, you’re not just rescuing food and providing meals; you’re opening doors of possibility for personal growth, well-being, and the chance for a brighter future.

Help us reach our goal of $100,000 on Giving Tuesday!
