Downtown Community Takeout
With ticket sold your dollars will be used to support Downtown’s restaurants and their employees, helping to ensure they’re still open when we get through the pandemic, while also providing meals to those of our neighbors experiencing food insecurity.
Thanks to the support of the Richard King Mellon Foundation, the City of Pittsburgh, and an anonymous donor, we’ve partnered with 412 Food Rescue for the Downtown Community Takeout to provide over 50,000 meals over the next six months to those struggling with food insecurity, but we need your help to maintain this effort.
How the program works:
We partner with participating Downtown restaurants to purchase meals
Restaurants remain open to prepare meals
412 Food Rescue delivers meals to those in need
How you can help:
Just $10 equals one meal delivered to a neighbor in need while supporting your favorite Downtown restaurants.
If you can’t donate, help spread the word. You can also sign up to be a food rescue hero with 412 Food Rescue and be a part of the team that delivers meals from our restaurants each week.
Why this is important
Current data shows the need for support for both restaurants and those experiencing food insecurity is significant. As unemployment claims have risen during 2020, the COVID-19 crisis has created a food insecurity rate across the country that has risen by 42% since 2018. With a 28% increase in applicants to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and the number of children expected to live in a food-insecure household is projected to increase by 61%, with food-related challenges are increasing daily.
In addition, the Pittsburgh restaurant industry has been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and disproportionately so in Downtown Pittsburgh businesses, who have seen the Downtown workforce customers dwindle to 10 – 15% of 2019 numbers with sales down by an average of 49%.
While recent years had seen the most significant economic growth in the Downtown restaurant scene, COVID-19 has permanently shuttered several Downtown restaurants and created dire circumstances for the other independently owned restaurants that could impact Downtown for years to come.
