Plant-Based Pittsburgh (also named Food for Health) is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization. Our mission is to 1) Inform individuals and families about the myriad health benefits of plant-based eating, and 2) Provide education and ongoing support about how to adopt and sustain plant-centered eating habits. We strive to build a "community of health" based on the practice of whole food, plant-based (WFPB) food choices, i.e. grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits, and with minimal processed foods, sugar, oil, and salt. We're also affiliated with the international Plant Pure Communities.

As a hub for the greater Pittsburgh area, we offer:


  • Meetings & Cooking Classes in different Pittsburgh-area locations. Whether new or experienced with plant-based lifestyle, all are welcome to attend. Come and meet others who are learning and benefiting from plant-centered eating; you'll receive helpful information, support, and plant-based camaraderie! [Please, no sales pitches.]

  • Newsletter each month to share events, recipes, and information for the Pittsburgh-area plant-based community. Sign up for future newsletters and see Index of Topics from past newsletters.

  • Directory listing healthcare practitioners & coaches, instructors, stores, products, community groups, and other services related to plant-based nutrition in Western Pennsylvania.

  • Community Outreach to physicians, healthcare providers and patients; libraries, community centers and organizations; conferences and festivals.
