The Pittsburgh Food Policy Council (PFPC) will hold its final community meeting to help shape the Greater Pittsburgh Food Action Plan. The PFPC is working with community members to develop a food action plan for Allegheny County.

Come to share thoughts, concerns, and ideas for stronger and healthier communities, including your experience and suggestions in such areas as: school food; urban agriculture and gardens; corner stores, grocery stores, and farmers markets; nutrition education; transportation barriers; food assistance programs such as WIC and SNAP; access for groups such as children, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities; and, other food systems information and concerns that you and your community think are important based on your particular experience, concerns, and needs.
