Founded in 2015, the EAT Initiative was birthed out of Chef Claudy’s vision to help fed and sustain food insecure communities. Since then, EAT’s primary focus has been to inject cultural competency and food education into communities in Pittsburgh and around the world. Historically, food insecure communities suffer from a lack of access to fresh food. Today, resources are scarce for these families and individuals, and this disparity deters families and individuals from preparing new meals in more nutritious and cost-efficient ways.
