Ways to Give Back This Holiday Season

By November 13, 2023Article

Looking to make a meaningful impact this holiday season? Dive into the spirit of giving with plenty of ways to get involved with 412 Food Rescue! 

As the holidays are approaching, many of us are gearing up to spend time with loved ones around a warm, festive meal. While we look forward to these celebratory gatherings, it’s important to acknowledge that not everyone has the same access to a bountiful table.

At the heart of 412 Food Rescue’s year-round mission, we strive to uplift the Pittsburgh community by creating more food access points with nutritious foods, placing more food within reach of our community members experiencing food insecurity. The holiday season is no different.

We believe that everyone should have access to affordable, quality, nutritious, and culturally appropriate foods - especially to partake in the tradition, warmth, and sanctity that holiday celebrations bring to our humanity.

This year, let’s embrace the spirit of giving and lend a hand to create meaningful change through simple acts of kindness. Check out the following ways to spread the warmth of kindness by supporting 412 Food Rescue during this festive time of year:

Volunteer with Food Rescues →

By volunteering your time with local food rescues, you can contribute to reducing food waste and ensuring that no one goes to bed hungry. Your efforts can make a significant difference.

Help out at the Good Food Project →

The Good Food Project is dedicated to providing nourishing meals to our community. By getting involved, you support initiatives that aim to create a sustainable and equitable food system. Your participation, whether through volunteering with the Good Food Project or Grocery Bagging, helps build a community where everyone has access to good food.

Create a fundraising page for Giving Tuesday →

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.

Donate Monetarily →

If you’re unable to volunteer your time, consider making a monetary donation. Financial support can help provide meals and other essential services to those facing hardships. Even a small donation can make a big difference in creating a brighter holiday season for someone in need.

Your involvement, no matter how big or small, can make a world of difference.

Let’s make this season one of compassion, ensuring that everyone in our community feels the holiday spirit. 🌟❤️
