What’s hAPPening in Pittsburgh?

Pittsburgh is in many ways the best of all worlds. With major league sports teams, deliciously unique restaurants and a host of interesting places to explore, the area offers everything one could want in big-city life while still being more accessible and affordable than many other metropolitan spaces. These Pittsburgh-related apps can help residents of the 412—and surrounding areas—embrace some of what the ‘burgh has to offer.

412 Food Rescue was created as a response to the disconnect among food waste, hunger and environmental sustainability. Though the organization is much more than just the app, timely technology is the tool that makes it all work. Volunteers can get involved by downloading the 412 Food Rescue app and signing up to be a “food rescue hero.” Users receive alerts when food becomes available and can opt in to deliver it to a local organization assisting people with food insecurity or directly to a person in need. The app walks users through step-by-step instructions for picking up and dropping off food. Want to do some good in the world? There’s an (awesome) app for that.

Pittsburgh boasts a world-class symphony, and many classical music afficionados will appreciate the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra app. Users may listen to live recordings and see videos of the PSO. Repertoire informa
