Pittsburgh Woman’s Food Rescue App Diverts 20 Million Pounds of Surplus into 17mil Meals For Those in Need
In 2019, Leah Lizarondo used her organization, Food Rescue, to create the Good Food Project to help turn food donations into single meals. Paying no money for food and creating zero waste, the kitchen is a model for effective food recovery and distribution. They prevent waste by transforming food that might go to the landfill into healthy, heat-and-eat meals and shelf-stable items packaged in compostable containers. The meals are then distributed to nonprofit partners serving the needy.
