PITTSBURGH, PA (September 11, 2020) The City of Pittsburgh Department of Parks and Recreation is teaming up with the United Way of Southwestern PA and Eat'n Park Hospitality Group to host "Citiparks Family Dinner Night" on Tuesday, September 22, 2020.
Five hundred family style pasta dinners for four will be distributed to families that are facing increased food insecurity due to COVID-19. Eat'n Park is working with chefs from the EAT Initiative, Aunt Cheryl's Cafe, and Mediterra Bakehouse to create these family meals. United Way is activating volunteers to assist with distribution and has helped to steward the funds from Allegheny County that make this effort possible. All meals will be distributed in partnership with Citiparks on Monday and Tuesday, September 21 & 22.
In addition to distribution of family dinners, all diners and the community at large are invited to join us for a 30 minute, fun, family friendly livestream program that will include special guest diners, information about how the meal was made and an opportunity to participate in a Q&A with the chefs. We hope that this program will provide a way for the Pittsburgh community to come together and enjoy a stress free evening during COVID-19. This livestream program will happen at 6:00 p.m. on September 22 — details and a link to the program are forthcoming.
Registration to receive a family dinner will be taken at all Citiparks food distribution sties and can be reserved on line at this link until September 17th: https://forms.gle/bV5pDcrnaZ42Vr6u8. Meals are first-come, first-served.
Tonight, the City-County Building is illuminated to recognize Poison Prevention Week and the 50th Anniversary of "Mr. Yuk" in partnership with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
