Pittsburgh Ranked In Top Ten Best Cities For Foodies

 Best Cities for Foodies
Americans have always been really into their food, but in recent years, many have gotten more particular about their palate. Hence, the foodie.
These discerning diners are more likely to go for 100% grass-fed beef than a McDonald’s burger, and they’ll choose locally owned and locally sourced eateries over chain restaurants.
The desires and dining dollars of these epicures have helped take the culinary scene up a notch in many cities. And that means more great food for everyone, especially for those in San Francisco and Portland, which top NerdWallet’s list of the Best Cities for Foodies.

Join the National Day of Action to Protect Summer Meals

Summer meals are a lifeline for hungry children when school is out. But federal funding for these programs is set to expire September 30.
Roughly one in five children in our region live in poverty and rely on free school meals to keep from going hungry. What do they do when school is out?
Thanks to federal funding they can head to neighborhood summer meal sites for 1-3 meals and a snack every day.
