Food in Our Neighborhoods
Join Chatham University’s Food Studies program for the second annual Food In Our Neighborhood event on Saturday, May 4, 2013. This free event will take place on Chatham’s Shadyside campus from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event includes workshops throughout the day on such topics as “Starting Your Own Home Food Business,” “How We Connect People to Neighborhoods through Food and Words,” and “Co-ops, Buying Clubs and Community Gardens: Exploring Alternative Food Options.” Registration for these workshops will be available online. In the afternoon, there will be a Community Foodscapes exhibit featuring community organizations from Pittsburgh’s many neighborhoods, samples from Pittsburgh chefs and restaurants, and hands-on activities for all ages. These will include a seed swap, “seed bomb” building, transplanting seedlings, and how to build a worm compost bin, plus much more! As the movement for accessible, appropriate, and sustainable food gains momentum, Food In Our Neighborhood will highlight resources, success stories, potential partnerships, and new ideas about how to bring and keep good food in Pittsburgh’s diverse neighborhoods.
