2015 Volunteer of the Year

Giving back to our communities is one of the fundamental pillars of our company culture. We know the importance and value of taking care of people both inside and outside our facilities.

Many of our team members are active volunteers in their neighborhoods, and we do what we can to support them in those endeavors. During the months of April and May, we recognize those who have gone above and beyond by generously giving their time and energy to support causes in their local communities.

From over 1,000 team members who volunteered over 30,000 hours of their time in 2015, we’re proud to announce that this year’s Eat’n Park Hospitality Group Volunteer of the Year is Jamie Moore!

Pictured above: Jennifer Flanagan, Executive Director and Founder of Project Lunch Tray, a project under Community Kitchen Pittsburgh, and Jamie Moore, 2015 Volunteer of the Year Winner.

Jamie, our  Director of Sourcing and Sustainability, has been an ENPHG team member for 15 years. Jamie is extremely passionate about food and that passion is reflected through his volunteer efforts.  He has volunteered with Slow Food Pittsburgh, HEARTH, Grow Pittsburgh, and countless others. Jamie has an extensive and meaningful involvement with organizations that connect people with food; including cooking, gardening and educating. 

In Jamie’s honor, Eat’n Park Hospitality Group will be donating $1,500 to Jamie’s charity of choice, Community Kitchen Pittsburgh. Founded in 2013, this organization’s mission is to use food as the foundation to change lives and strengthen communities. They achieve this through their work with workforce development, community-engaged social enterprise, and food waste reduction. Jamie volunteers with many of their initiatives, including Project Lunch Tray, a cooking competition encouraging and inspiring kids to think outside the typical lunch box food and advocate for better school food.

Please join us in congratulating Jamie and our other finalists for their extensive efforts in the community!
