💻Virtual Volunteering! 🙋 Mapping Food Distribution Sites amid COVID-19 🥄


🥣 - Are you part of a community organization who is doing something related to food distribution or know of locals who have been distributing food but do not have an outlet to publicize their efforts?

🚫- Have you heard about a food distribution location being moved or closed and you want to get the word out?

🥱- Are you bored in front of your computer and need to do something to pass the time that would help a lot of people?

🎉 Then you are the PERFECT candidate to help update Allegheny County's Food Distribution Map! 🎉

The map should be self-explanatory, but if it's not, then check out this document for instructions on how to get involved RIGHT NOW. This document also includes some sources to get you started looking for new locations to include or existing locations to check.
