INITIATIVES

You waste life when you waste good food.

                                 –Katherine Anne Porter

Food21 works as a catalyst to build and grow the food economy by assembling and supporting regional initiatives.  

 

In 2019, Food21 focused on launching the region’s first association of food and beverage makers, Pittsburgh Food & Beverage (FaB) as well as bringing InCity Farms to the region to launch a series of large commercial vertical aquaponic farms.  Food21 seeks to facilitate these efforts with the goal of continually expanding the region’s food economy and expanding the value chains that strengthen over time.

We continue to look for opportunities that are consistent with our values of sustainability, environmental responsibility, inclusivity and well-being.  If you would like to know more or want to get involved with these initiatives please contact rick@food21.org.
