Farm to Table Pittsburgh is part of Pittsburgh’s Bicentennial Celebration

Celebrate with us!

Farm to Table Pittsburgh is pleased to announce a partnership with the Pittsburgh Bicentennial Commission, formed by Mayor William Peduto and including communities, organizations, and individuals in the celebration of the two-hundredth year of incorporation of the City of Pittsburgh.

Farm to Table Pittsburgh’s 10th annual educational conference shares the same opening date as the Bicentennial opening, Friday, March 18, 2016. The conference aims to connect consumers directly with local farmers and food producers. This connection helps to build a strong food security network, creates easy access to more nutritional food and supports the economic strength of our region.

Pittsburgh + Food = Awesome

Farm to Table Pittsburgh shares its success with the rising popularity of eating real local food that the region has embraced in the latest food revolution. That sentiment is shared by the recent titles of “Top Food City of 2015” by Zagat, the “Next Big Food City” by Bon Appetit in 2014, #3 “Best Foodie Cities” by Livability.com, and “Delicious!” by anyone who happens to stop in a myriad of mom and pop shops and growing number of sustainable restaurants on any given day.

The conference is just the kickoff for Farm to Table Pittsburgh. They will also be involved in the St. Patrick’s day parade and the Bicentennial Bash celebratory parade on July 9, 2016, with fireworks concluding the event at Point State Park.

Along with Farm to Table Pittsburgh, over 200 organizations, companies, nonprofits and individuals are participating in the yearlong celebration. For more information log onto www.PGH200.com or contact Holly Bulvony at 412-471-4160.
