May 16: Food Revolution Day

85 organizations and 20 of Pittsburgh's top chefs will come together to celebrate our region's food culture and the people who work together to build it.  The goal is to feed 5,000 families, so please spread the word. 

Farm to Table Pittsburgh & American HealthCare Group will host a "Make your Own  Trail Mix" station.  Farm to Table Pittsburgh is the local food & healthy eating component of Pathways to SmartCare Wellness Program.  We provide Local Food Programs for schools, employers, senior residencies and community groups.  Our mission is to bridge the gap between consumers and local food producers. Eating locally grown food benefits both our physical health and also our local economic health.

Food Revolution Day Pittsburgh 2014 is part of an on-going initiative through the Food Revolution Pittsburgh Cooking Club program at Obama to support students and enliven our community about food access and youth empowerment. The one-day event is designed to provide an opportunity for Pittsburgh to dine and enjoy good food as a community and a city while engaging in conversation, creativity and activities that reflect living well.

3-6 p.m. at Obama Academy.

The Food Revolution Pittsburgh Cooking Club was started by Bar Marco in October 2012, inspired by Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. They teach kids how to cook every Tuesday after school at Obama Academy!
