Eat'n Park Farm Stand Project

Since 2010, we have been partnering with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank as part of their Farm Stand Project to help bring fresh, local produce to under-served neighborhoods.

Once a month, an Eat’n Park representative visits one of 13 different farm stands to promote local produce and ways to use it in everyday cooking. Food demonstrations and interactive learning are also part of the visit.

The Farm Stand project is part of our LifeSmiles™ initiative, which empowers our young guests and their parents to make healthier choices. Farm stands are great places to get fresh, healthy food.

Check out some of the pictures, and we hope to see you at a Farm Stand soon!

Local Food Month


At Eat’n Park, we’re passionate about buying local. In fact, throughout the summer, we’re proud to feature many locally grown, seasonal fruits and veggies – not only on our Soup & Salad Bar, but also in many of our menu items. This year, we’ve expanded our passion for local food by being the presenting sponsor of Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture’s (PASA) Local Food Month in September.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of our FarmSource™ program, where we support and buy local produce. Last year alone, we spent more than $10 million dollars in local sourcing and worked with more than 200 local growers, farmers, and dairies. Our sponsorship of Local Food Month just made sense!

We’ve been a strong supporter of PASA since 2005 and really believe in their mission in supporting our local farmers. Throughout the month, various events will take place to shed light on the importance of buying local. For a full list of events, visit www.localfoodmonth.tumblr.com.

Partner Spotlight of the Month: Ryan Clark Cure League

Every month here on our blog, we'll be highlighting one of our non-profit partnerships. This month, learn a little more about the Ryan Clark Cure League.

Pittsburgh Steeler Ryan Clark recently teamed up with the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC to raise awareness about sickle cell disease and funds for research. Sickle cell disease affects millions of people worldwide, and is the most common inherited blood disorder in the United States. It primarily affects African Americans and people of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern descent. Through the newly formed Ryan Clark Cure League, Ryan hopes to create a better future for those living with the disease.

Ryan has the sickle cell trait, meaning that he carries the gene for sickle cell disease. People with sickle cell disease inherit one gene from each parent for the abnormal, sickle-shaped hemoglobin. These cells become lodged in blood vessels, causing excruciating pain, infections, and potentially damaging vital organs such as the lungs and heart to the point of organ failure. Organ damage and even strokes can also occur in children and adults who have the disease. There is no cure for sickle cell disease and few successful treatments. People who have this disease live with chronic pain and frequent hospitalizations, and many die in their 40s or 50s.


Ryan’s sickle cell trait became a national story during the 2007 season when he first realized that he carries the trait in a game against the Broncos in Denver. Even though he does not have the disease, the high altitude conditions, such as that of Mile High Stadium, caused Ryan’s red blood cells to sickle. He became very sick and needed emergency surgeries to remove his spleen and gallbladder. Ryan’s subsequent inability to participate in away games at Denver—including the first game of the Steelers regular season on September 9th—continues to make local and national headlines.

Ryan is passionate about creating a better future for those living with sickle cell disease: He is partnering with experts at the University of Pittsburgh Vascular Medicine Institute and UPMC to build the world’s leading research program for patients with sickle cell disease, with a focus on finding better treatments that will improve patient care until a cure is found.

But Ryan can’t tackle this by himself—he needs help to expand this message of awareness and hope. Visit www.cureleague.org or call Kim Olsen at 412-647-4276 to learn more about how you can support the Ryan Clark Cure League.
