One of the things city dwellers haven’t thought much about for years is where our food comes from. A few years ago I would have answered that question with the Giant Eagle or back in the day The Food Gallery – does anyone else remember that grocery store – it was located where the Shadyside Market District is now located.
Anyhow – we are learning – processed food isn’t so good for us, and shipping food around the country and the globe has some drawbacks too. So there are lots of people who are doing something about local food.
PASA is the Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture – they are just one of the many organizations that is talking about where our food comes from.
PASA and Paragon Foods invite you to a summer farm season kick off on June 13 at Penn Brewery. If you are interested in meeting local farmers and learning more about local food here in Pittsburgh – this should be a great event.
