412 Food Rescue + La Prima Coffee

412 Food Rescue is at it again, continuing to spread resources of food surplus in our city! If you're a fan of the Strip District, then chances are you might be a fan of the authentic Italian coffee shop, La Prima Coffee. On any given morning, you'll find a group of older Italians gathered for their morning coffee - and it doesn't get much more authentic that that! It's exciting to hear that La Prima Coffee is teaming up with 412 Food Rescue to benefit our community.

412 Food Rescue and La Prima Coffee will be hosting a party to celebrate the launch of their partnership:
  • August 10 starting at 10 AM ET – open to the public
  • Light breakfast refreshments - biscottis/pastries/etc
How it will benefit 412 Food Rescue:
  • $1 of each bag sold will be donated to 412 Food Rescue to further their mission to #endhunger and #endfoodwaste in Pittsburgh.
  • Promotion lasts until the coffee is sold out!
How you can purchase coffee:
  • On the 412 Food Rescue website here. 
  • La Prima will also sell the 412 Food Rescue bean from their Strip District Espress Bar and Nova Place .
  • The coffee will be sold whole bean, but if you buy it at La Prima retail locations, they will be happy to grind it for your machine.

Volunteer Opportunities
412 Food Rescue volunteers make the work happen. Food rescue heroes transport food from donors to nonprofit partners. Pick ups happen daily and can be as quick as 30 minutes of your time.
You can volunteer as much or as little as you like. 412 Food Rescue alerts volunteers to available “rescues” and they respond to the ones that are right for them. Download the app (iOs or Android) to get alerts on rescues near you.
The organization has opportunities to leverage also any skill set, from hands-on activities such as food rescues and harvesting of produce to admin tasks and event planning.
Email to inquire about how you can work with the organization!

Opportunities for Students as They Head Back to School This Fall
As students head back to Pittsburgh, there are ample opportunities for them to get involve
d, as well! College students are encouraged to reach out to learn more about starting a 412 Food Rescue chapter on their campus OR they can join an existing organization on campus. If college students are going into a food related field (including nutrition/dietetics, public health, education, culinary arts, etc.), they could become Cooking Matters instructors.

So, grab that coffee while you can and don't forget to sign up with your kids to be a Food Rescue Hero!

Congratulations on the partnership! I really like the concept of Food Rescue Hero. The opportunities that you are providing for the students, the volunteer work and the donations, everything is amazing. Good luck with it.

A detailed post regarding an event organized by a cafe and along with inviting people, it is also calling out to volunteers for the purpose of aiding them in the orchestration. Nicely written with appropriate bifurcations to organize the post.
