The love of good food is universal and has the power to bring people together.
A healthy democracy requires diverse leadership and many voices – it is inclusive and prioritizes access and opportunities for historically marginalized communities to be heard.
This year the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council will connect eating with civic engagement during the Sunday Supper event, a community dinner to celebrate our region's work towards a more just and sustainable food system.
Last year's 500 plates event in Akron last year is the inspiration for this concept.
Join us for a free, family-friendly community meal for 500 people crafted from local ingredients, as well as entertainment from local artists and a community-driven discussion on food-related issues with neighborhood leaders and policy makers.
We are seeking volunteers for our Sunday Supper event on October 16, 2016. If you are interested, please select the volunteer ticket type.
Volunteers will assist in set-up of the event, check-in, and tear-down activities. Your volunteer pass includes your meal and participation in the conversation.
1:15-5:00 p.m. on Grant Street, downtown.
Check-in starting at 1:15 p.m., local entertainment from 2 p.m., supper served at 3 p.m., followed by discussion. For more information go to PittsburghFoodDay.org
Sunday Supper, a Pittsburgh Food Day Celebration is hosted by the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council.
