The Pittsburgh Penguins and their partners at Aramark have donated 2,000 pounds of perishable food items from PPG Paints Arena over the past few days to 412 Food Rescue for distribution to local organizations and neighbors in need.
The ton of food would have otherwise spoiled due to the Coronavirus pandemic, which led to a pause in the NHL season and other events.
412 Food Rescue is a local agency that connects restaurants and food service organizations to food shelters and pantries that serve residents in need.
"We are all trying to do our best to help our community during this difficult time," said David Morehouse, president and CEO of the Penguins. "We know that 412 Food Rescue will do a great job of distributing this food from PPG Paints Arena to those in need."
