@ The Residency
412 Food Rescue shared an important update on food access in the region as Leah Lizarondo and the team presented the collective impact of our food donors, nonprofit partners and volunteers. Extraordinary action was taken by the 412 Food Rescue and Food Rescue Hero communities in response to the challenges caused by the unforeseen 2020 crisis.
The Pittsburgh community showed up in ways that prove that the collective power of people, armed with a powerful technology platform, can do amazing things:
And so much more.
After the presentation, the 412 Food Rescue team celebrated their dedicated volunteers with the release of LOVE IS #FREE: 100 Food Rescue Hero Stories to Inspire – a book collaboration with Pittsburgh artist Baron Batch, Chancelor Humphrey of Keep Pittsburgh Dope, and poet Veronica Corpuz.
On behalf of our team and our partners: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
