Throughout the project, Argo AI will work with 412 Food Rescue to pick up and transport meals to nonprofits who offer food assistance in the region. Argo will also donate and deliver meals prepared by its food service provider, Parkhurst Dining.

Summer Fowler, Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer, Argo AI said:

“We’re driven by our purpose of reimagining the human journey, and that includes ensuring self-driving vehicles are broadening access to transportation and goods to everyone in the communities where we operate. We see an opportunity for autonomous vehicles to offer reliable delivery of food donations to address food insecurity, and we are proud to launch this initiative with 412 Food Rescue and Parkhurst.”

Leah Lizarondo, Co-founder and CEO, 412 Food Rescue said;

“412 Food Rescue has always aimed to modernise food recovery to make donating surplus food easier for businesses, and delivering that food immediately, making food access convenient for people in need. We believe in using every tool in our technological toolbox to get food to people who need it, and we’re excited to explore how one of the most innovative technologies we’ve seen in Pittsburgh can be used for good through our partnership with Argo.”

Argo has also established Community Advisory Boards (CABs) in Miami and Austin, where its commercial autonomous ridesharing and goods delivery services are currently deployed.
