Beyond The Menu is series of accessible gatherings, talks, and events to celebrate Pittsburgh’s food and beverage culture. Our events are mostly free or with limited entry fees as an attempt to create an inclusive environment for all residents of our region to share in the discussion of what food means to our City.
With you, we’ll reflect on the industry’s growth and share ideas about what it means to have a thriving food culture in a major metropolitan region. Most importantly, we want to tell our stories, learn from others and determine how we can continue improving our city, while providing accessibility to all.
During each event, we will be crowdsourcing through our Twitter feed to establish a shared Manifesto for what Pittsburgh food should mean for our region in the future [#pittsburghfoodmanifesto]. The goal is to provoke conversations about who’s left out, how we can affect change, and where we might go in the future through innovation and collaboration. With the help of Pittsburgh Food Policy Council, we’ll be collecting stories and ideas about how to make our food culture accessible to everyone.
