412 Food Rescue aims to fight hunger by collecting fresh, healthy food that would otherwise be discarded and directly distributing to community organizations that serve those in need. We do this 100% by volunteers who use their cars and bikes to pick up food from our retail donors and deliver directly to our community partners across Allegheny County. They are expanding our volunteer network and are looking for both regular and ad hoc volunteers. Regular volunteers have a designated weekly pick up and drop off location. Ad hoc opportunities are their "on the fly" pick ups/drop offs and are posted on their social media accounts. All of their volunteer opportunities average 30 minutes and are tailored to be convenient to your neighborhood, commute, and schedule.
Volunteers must have a valid driver's license and access to a reliable vehicle.
