Green City Market's Chef BBQ: Foodie Heaven With Social Impact - Good Food on Every Table
The biggest beneficiaries of the Chef BBQ aren't the satisfied (maybe sated) attendees. The BBQ is a fundraiser that provides resources for Green City Market's main location in Chicago's Lincoln Park and three recently opened satellite locations, all of which provide regional farmers from Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin with a place to sell to the fast-growing constituency of consumers seeking food grown locally using sustainable, humane and fair practices. The BBQ also helps fund Green City Market's food education programs for children and its food access programs that enable lower-income customers to enjoy the seasonal bounty of fresh, healthy food that once was mostly limited to more affluent consumers.
