Join us for a bi-weekly work night featuring a duo of civic projects: Pittsburgh Food Policy Council's Food Access Tool and City Scrapers! We'll have pizza and fun company -- seasoned team members and newcomers are welcome!

More information below:

Pittsburgh Food Policy Council's Food Access Tool:

This project's goal is to create an internal and public-facing resource (e.g. an interactive map) for people looking to find healthy, affordable food (ie. where can I buy produce with SNAP?).

The City Bureau City Scrapers Open Source Project:

This project supports the Documenters program for documenting public events, such as school board meetings, City Hall meetings, police board meetings, etc. We are hoping to build a community in Pittsburgh that can start building and supporting scrapers within the platform for the Pennsylvania region.

City Scrapers is a risk-free python/Git learning environment, a way to build a platform for public engagement in Pittsburgh, and an environment designed to prioritize a more diverse coding space than most civic tech groups.

If you have any questions or are interested, please feel free to email at [masked].
