Allegheny Eats addressed 3 key areas of need brought forth by the COVID-19 crisis: crop spoilage/food waste, food insecurity within the worker community, and the overall health and survival of the restaurant industry. By engaging local food lovers, Allegheny Eats provided a one-stop-shop where consumers could support their favorite restaurants, help feed industry workers, and support local farms and producers through their purchases.
