Community Outreach Projects and Events
The East End Food Co-op’s mission for healthy people and a healthy environment reaches beyond the walls of our retail storefront. We are founding members of the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council, which meets monthly to network, share resources, and strategize food policy issues. We also participate in other community projects, and we sponsor, table, and present at various community events throughout the year which are in alignment with our Ends Policy Statement. If you are an organizer and want the Co-op to participate in your event, contact our Outreach & Education Coordinator.
Look for your Co-op at these upcoming events in the community:
