Building Back Better

Cooking with Chef Claudy is the first in a series of new virtual events launching this month framed around the Build Back Better (BBB) agenda. Our goal is for our public programs to be a platform for diverse audiences and speakers to come together and build stronger, more resilient connections that transcend all communities so that as we move forward, we will be stronger together. To focus our programming on supporting stronger communities, the Council will focus on the following four thematic areas for all public program offerings: Learning Hour, PGH Ingenuity, Community Gathering, and World Recess.

About Chef Claudy Pierre

In a Haitian-American household in Brooklyn, cooking became Chef Claudy’s escape as he helped his grandmother create meals for their large family. After graduating high school, Claudy moved to Pittsburgh, PA to pursue culinary arts. Amidst the COVID-19 world pandemic, Chef Claudy launched the Third Meal Project, which is a weekly meal delivery program that provides dinner, groceries, and snacks to families and elders in need. Learn more about Chef Claudy and his nonprofit the Eat Initiative.
