412 Food Rescue is excited to onboard UPMC Mercy as a new food donor!

UPMC Mercy joins 412 Food Rescue in their commitment to reduce food waste by partnering as a new food donor with the food rescue organization.

During their first two weeks, they donated a total of 1,193 lbs of food from their Food Service Department!

This new partnership with UPMC Mercy is a part of an ongoing initiative between 412 Food Rescue and UPMC to help increase their sustainability system-wide. 412 Food Rescue is currently working with UPMC to onboard more locations throughout the Pittsburgh region, helping them to reduce food wasted on their campuses and instead redirect it to nearby community organizations and local nonprofits.

“Weโ€™d like to thank UPMC Mercy for their generous food donation. It is providing over 200 delicious meals to the community! Also thank you to 412 Rescue for connecting us to this donation! It is very much appreciated. Our volunteers will be packaging and putting meals out throughout the day.”
