Charity Announcement!!January 15, 2013
We’ve been keeping a secret for a few months now and we finally get to share it. We’ve picked our main charity to support this year. We are thrilled to support the Greater Chicago Food Depository! This organization collects and provides healthy and nutritious food to 140,000 individuals every week in the City of Chicago. As people who have access to nutritious food daily, we feel an obligation to provide the same resources to those who don’t have the same opportunities. The first way we will support this organization is by participating in one of Chicago’s most acclaimed annual food events. We’ve had the honor of being invited to Bacon Fest Chicago. This event is a gathering of local chefs creating bacon inspired dishes and serving them free of charge at a ticketed event. It’s an event whose main priority (besides bacon) is a food drive and fundraiser to support the GCFD. Each participant donates their time, ingredients, and staffing in order to keep costs down and drive more dollars toward the charity. It’s a big commitment for a small business but supports an incredible cause. Along with supporting an amazing charity, it’s an honor to be invited to this event. We will be serving our dish along-side some of the most acclaimed chefs in the city and nation.
Bacon Fest is just the beginning.
In addition to Bacon Fest, we will also participate in food drives and other events that support the GCFD this year. Expect more announcements as to what those are in the near future…
