First Grade and 412 Food Rescue
First graders made their own connections with social responsibility, empathy and kindness by partnering with local Pittsburgh agency, 412 Food Rescue. Our young agents of change made 'gratitude cards' for 412 Food Rescue volunteers and donors.
412 Food Rescue bridges the gap between waste and hunger. They rescue food from local restaurants and retailers and deliver it to organizations who can use it immediately to service those in need.
