Please share with your elected municipal officials and community leaders!

At the Forum, you will hear about the numerous health, environmental, and economic advantages of fostering an accessible and local food system and learn how you can promote and aid the process in your municipality. We will discuss what food-friendly policies are and why they are important to your community. Grow Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Food Policy Council have worked with us to create a program that explores numerous topics, including: land use and reuse, urban agricultural and a related model ordinance, the farm to table experience, restaurant incubators and workforce development.

If you can’t join us for the Forum, please join us afterward for the Happy Hour at Hitchhiker Brewery! (and vise versa)
