Posted 5/15/2014 9:11pm by Val Kennedy.

Hello Farmers Market Fans

I am sending this special message to let you know about an event being held tomorrow right in our neighborhood at the Obama Academy.  Its the Food Revolution Day and its happening tomorrow from 3 to 6.  This is the second year that we are celebrating it with a major event in Pittsburgh.  Check out their website or the brief description below for more information.

Food Revolution Day is a global day of action for people to make a stand for good food and essential cooking skills. It’s a chance for people to come together within their homes, schools, workplaces and communities to cook and share their kitchen skills, food knowledge and resources. Food Revolution Day aims to raise awareness about the importance of good food and better food education for everyone by focusing on three simple actions – cook it, share it, live it.

The 2nd annual 2014 Food Revolution Day Pittsburgh will include integrative activities, food booths and theme-based exhibits. We anticipate the event being one of the largest Food Revolution Day events globally with attendance of over 5,000. Thanks to partnership with the Pittsburgh Global Shapers the event will recognize and invigorate cross-sector efforts dedicated to sustaining food-focused community development. Beyond the one-day event, the goal is to raise $250,000.00 to advance the Cooking Club’s programming in the Pittsburgh region.
