HACP and 412 Food Rescue to Launch New Food Delivery Service

From the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh's press release:

In 2016, representatives of the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) began working with representatives of a start-up nonprofit organization to help address food insecurity in public housing. They didn’t know it at the time, but their partnership would end up connecting thousands of low-income families with regular access to fresh, healthy food while creating a national model for food rescue and delivery services.

Some five years, later HACP and 412 Food Rescue are poised to launch a new collaborative program designed expand the critical services that 412 Food Rescue has provided to many HACP communities for the past five years, to ensure that the service is now available to every resident of communities owned and operated by the Housing Authority. During that time, 412 Food Rescue has brought fresh, healthy food by the ton directly to HACP households.

“This is a big step forward in our partnership,” said Michelle Sandidge, Chief Community Affairs Officer at the HACP. “By working with 412 Food Rescue, we’ve already eliminated the need for emergency food assistance in our communities. They’ve been there to help families in crisis since day one. With this new initiative, we’ll now be able to serve all communities on a regular basis.”
