Diversity enriches the fabric of our community and contributes to the vitality and strength of our region. One Big Table is an international food tasting and entertainment showcase celebrating the richness of culture in our region.
On March 13, more than 350 Literacy Pittsburgh friends gathered at Stage AE, helping to raise more than $83,000 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.
More than 20 restaurants joined us showcasing Middle Eastern, Mexican, Soul, Greek, Turkish, Peruvian, Thai, and Indian cuisines and more! Scroll down to view the restaurant list and visit them on your next night out.
DJ Arie Cole kept the party going with his global sounds and Urban Africans, Zang TKD and Organization of Chinese Americans entertained guests with special performances. Guests shopped at our artisan market featuring handmade items from global artisans. We appreciate the generous support of all of our sponsors, especially Universal Ally Highmark Wholecare, and all of our guests and volunteers. Congratulations to our 50/50 raffle winner who took home $4,200.
We received great coverage from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Tribune-Review as well as a lot of social media love from our sponsors, restaurant partners, and guests.
