Since its inception, PA Eats has provided Pennsylvanians with insightful stories, delicious recipes, and informational videos showcasing Pennsylvania’s rich and vibrant food culture.
Now, they look to provide even more impactful services to residents around the state.
PA Eats has transitioned to a non-profit organization with the mission of helping to fight hunger in Pennsylvania.
This new venture combines their passion for PA food culture with giving back to Pennsylvanians in need.
Moving forward, PA Eats will donate its profits to Feeding Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Council of Feeding America Food Banks. All PA Eats donations will be earmarked for food that is grown and produced in Pennsylvania.
Not only will this help put fresh food on the table for struggling families throughout the state, but it also benefits Pennsylvania farms.
While accessibility is a huge step, PA Eats knows to make a meaningful impact they must go even further.
In addition to providing more Pennsylvania products to food banks, the new project will also empower and educate people through their new video series, Nourish PA.
This innovative series will feature chefs and food professionals demonstrating how to make healthy, simple and affordable meals for less than $2 per person.
Nourish PA will take the ingredients they are putting into the food banks and make it even easier for people to get them on their table.
The recipes will be tailored so almost anyone can cook them. As long as you have basic skills and tools, along with access to ingredients, PA Eats and its partners will help with the rest.
How you can help
PA Eats can’t do this alone. They are putting out a call to local chefs and food providers to volunteer their talents to help further their efforts.
They are looking for individuals who can create recipes that meet the following criteria:
- Cost less than $2 per person to make
- Are easy to make with basic cookware and tools
- Use standard ingredients and items found at most food banks and in your average kitchen cupboard
If that sounds like you, there are two ways you can volunteer.
- On-site at PA Eats’ kitchen studio in Lancaster County to develop recipes for their video series.
- Collaborate with PA Eats to develop healthy recipes that meet the criteria above.
