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 an independent member organization of the international Plant Pure Pod network.

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.
