The Empowerment, Awareness, & Training (E.A.T.) Initiative, Inc. is a non-profit organization that empowers food-insecure communities throughout the Pittsburgh, PA region to source, procure, and prepare their own healthy food.

At the E.A.T. Initiative, we believe that access to fresh produce and healthy food options is a basic human right.
