412 Food Rescue Launches Home Delivery Feature

412 Food Rescue is launching a new Home Delivery feature to drop off food to people in need.

412 Food Rescue Home Delivery

During the COVID-19 pandemic, food delivery has been a necessary option for home-bound seniors and other vulnerable communities. To keep its communities stocked with fresh, healthy food, 412 Food Rescue will soon launch Home Deliveries as a type of food rescue for volunteers.

How does it work?

412 Rescue works with nonprofit partners to identify individuals in need of home deliveries. Recipients get matched with qualified Food Rescue Hero volunteers who pick up food boxes and deliver them to several households in one trip. Interested volunteers can choose which rescues to accept. Home deliveries are marked with a Home Delivery icon.

Join as a Volunteer

When first using the home delivery feature, volunteers will be prompted to complete a background check. A background check must be completed to accept home deliveries. The process is quick, simple, and free. To get started:

    • complete a background check (approximately 5 minutes), and
    • accept a Home Delivery rescue.

If You Need Food

If you need food, contact Pennsylvania 211 to be matched with available services in your area. Calls are free and confidential. Interpreter services are available in over 140 languages.
