Pittsburgh Pod creates Meal Kits for Food Pantry

By June 1, 2020August 31st, 2020No Comments


PlantPure Communities receives reports from around the world from Pods about how they are adapting to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Plant-Based Pittsburgh Pod in Pennsylvania wanted to help their community during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing education and by donating food. Pod leaders decided that they would make meal kits containing key ingredients for plant-based meals, along with easy recipes and information about healthful plant-centered eating. The Pod members worked together to both donate and assemble packages with information and nutrition. 

Pod leaders sent out a call to action, asking that Pod members donate from a predetermined list of foods. Members donated non-perishable items and recipes, while volunteers packed meal kits in clear plastic bags with the label “Donated by Plant-Based Pittsburgh, Be Healthy.”

 The Pod delivered the first round of meals on May 5th, 2020. A local news reporter and film crew joined the Pod — offering great publicity while helping to connect the city with their local plant-based community in Pittsburgh.
