Farm to Table Pittsburgh Conference Turns 10!
By Kylie Weisenborn
Do you ever wonder where your food comes from? Are you interested in hands-on cooking demonstrations, gardening, and health and wellness? The 10th Annual Farm to Table Pittsburgh Conference on Friday, March 18, and Saturday, March 19, is for you! From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, satisfy your palate with a Friday night food tasting and Saturday farm fresh breakfast, along with interactive exhibits, guest speakers, and children’s activities. The Real Meal Purveyors local food court is new this year and will feature concessions, caterers, and food trucks — all who use local and natural ingredients. A cooking competition, Community Kitchen Pittsburgh’s 2nd Annual Project Lunch Tray program, will take place with students and chefs cooking from scratch and redesigning school lunches. Erin Hart, American HealthCare Group Health Benefit Services director, says, “As our hometown wins more recognition for the quality and variety of the local food scene and celebrates its 200th birthday, we’re continuing our work in connecting consumers and local food producers across Western Pennsylvania.” Register online at farmtotablepa.com/conference.
