Fish Fry Map Returns to Lent You A Hand

God bless technology.

Fish fry map, hallowed be thy name. 

Lent is upon us, meaning the return of fish fry season and the  Pittsburgh Lenten Fish Fry Map

The map is an official project of Code for Pittsburgh, a local subsidiary of Code for America, an organization focused on using technology to improve how the government serves the public. A group of volunteers sources the map data from news outlets, social media and public requests. 

It even distinguishes between church and community organizations, if you’d prefer to eat next to Sister Mary Catherine in a church basement over Bob in a fire hall. 

Users can also filter through locations that are open for lunch, serve homemade pierogies, have takeout, are handicap accessible, are open on Good Friday and serve alcohol, in case that’s not your Lenten sacrifice.  

Check out the Facebook page for photos of fish fries from around the region as well as other updates. Bonus points if you use Code for Pittsburgh’s Fish Fry Clock to count down the days until Lent.
