2nd Annual Collard Greens Cook-Off!

On November 4th The Braddock Youth Project hosted their Second Annual Collard Greens Cook-Off.  Overall there were 13 cooks vying for the votes of more than 100 visitors. The event was a rousing success. BYP would like to especially thank all of the work that our garden team took upon themselves in preparing the side dishes for the event as well as the youth who gave up their free time on a Sunday to help out!

The event would not have been nearly as successful if The BYP didn’t have such great donors. We want to give special thanks and consideration to:

The Pittsburgh Opera

The Carnegie Museum

The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium

The Andy Warhol Museum

The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

The Society for Contemporary Craft

Phipps Conservatory

Yokoso Japanese Steakhouse



KLN Photography


Vitamin World

The Greater Pittsburgh Church of Christ Single’s Ministry

Braddock Hills Giant Eagle

Braddock Redux

The Collards Cook-Off also gave the public their first chance to sample some of the great food that the soon-to-be-open Braddock Community Café will be serving. Sabrina Hykes, the café manager, was on hand making fruit smoothies, coffee, hot apple cider, and soup! To set up catering for your organization please contact Sabrina at braddockcafe@gmail.com

The winners of the Cook-Off were:

$250 – 1st Place – Piggy Greens, Kimmy Miller and Chris Ferry

$125 – 2nd Place – Sweet Sally’s Greens, Rachelle Mackson

$75 – 3rd Place – Milton’s Greens, James Milton
