Farm to Table Buy Local is a non-profit 501(c)(3) formed in 2018 to promote locally grown agriculture and improve access to fresh, healthy food. We serve the 30 counties of Western Pennsylvania.
The organization’s founder, Erin Hart, started the annual Farm to Table Local Food Conference in Pittsburgh in 2007. We now publish the digital and print Western PA Local Food Guide and work with hundreds of farms and local growers to promote their products to consumers and wholesale buyers. In addition, we are the Western Pennsylvanian chapter of the Buy Fresh Buy Local brand campaign.
Farm to Table Buy Local provides a myriad of programming to promote real, fresh, local food. These activities include food deliveries, online webinars for children and adults as well, helping people access food assistance programs. We work in schools, community centers, affordable housing, and child care centers. The Heinz Endowments has supported our mission through grant awards since 2018.
