Good Food Project

A small group of staff and volunteers in an industrial kitchen with prepared food

Led by Chef Ed Anderson, we stabilize and transform surplus food into healthy meals.

412 Food Rescue will soon create healthy, heat-and-eat meals, as well as shelf-stable products and other innovative solutions to ending food waste and hunger in our communities.

The Good Food Project stabilizes and transforms surplus food into healthy meals for 412 Food Rescue’s nonprofit partners and serves as a space for volunteer and community engagement and food education. 

The Good Food Project is located inside the Millvale Food + Energy Hub in partnership with Sprezzatura Cafe and New Sun Rising. The Millvale Food + Energy Hub gives the former Millvale Moose Lodge new life with a café, community kitchen, shared workspace, and an event space.
