Our Team

The EAT Initiative was founded in 2015 in honor of Claudy’s grandmother, Marie Lucienne Dessources. She taught Claudy how to cook and cultivated his drive for quality food for all. Chef Claudy’s envisioned using his skills 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. The four things that keep us up at night are family, food, finances, and the future. Our goal is to address all of these by focusing on food. 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. Our goal is to change that.
