One Big Table: An International Tasting

March 4, 2024

A Global Feast of Food, Entertainment, and Art celebrating the diversity of our region.

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Literacy Pittsburgh. Over 400 individuals gathered at Stage AE helping us raise more than $115,000 so our students can improve their reading, writing, math , English language, digital literacy, and workplace skills. One Big Table: An International Tasting celebrates the diversity of our region through food, art, and entertainment. 

Twenty restaurants joined us, showcasing Middle Eastern, Mexican, Turkish, Ethiopian, Thai, and Indian cuisines and more! Once again, our Literacy Pittsburgh staff provided an awesome "City of Bridges" cookie and donut table. Scroll down to view the restaurant list and visit them on your next night out.

Ishtar Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Samba Group, and Mädel Jäger kept everyone entertained throughout the night. Guests shopped at our artisan market featuring handmade items from global artisans. We appreciate the generous support of all of our sponsors, and all of our guests and volunteers who contributed to the fun event.
