Local heroes 412 Food Rescue is expanding their school bus stop food distribution program to Pittsburgh’s Hilltop/South, Hill District/East and West Pittsburgh neighborhoods.
The program, in partnership with A+ Schools and the Latino Community Center, was created to complement grab-and-go meals provided at Pittsburgh Public Schools during the pandemic.
The program was created to complement grab-and-go meals provided at Pittsburgh Public Schools during the pandemic. Delivering to bus stops in neighborhoods that are further from school campuses means children have shorter walks and therefore a greater chance of being able to access much-needed meals.
The food distribution buses will be in service between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Monday, April 6, Wednesday, April 8, and Friday, April 10. Meals will be provided by Eat’n Park and Community Kitchen Pittsburgh, and will be distributed using trucks provided by Construction Junction, the Salvation Army of Western PA, and PriZilla the Print Bus.
412 Food Rescue says that 9,000 meals will be distributed over the three days.
More volunteers are needed at the stops, and volunteers can sign up by sending an email to email@example.com
