Building a Healthier Chicago’s Eat Real Chicago! is excited to present
Chicago Food Day 2016
Chicago Food Day is an annual event, promoting information and inspiration you need to start eating healthy, sustainable, real foods instead of processed foods. The national theme for Food Day is “Toward a Greener Diet”. Chicago Food Day brings this theme to life with programs to inspire Chicagoans to adopt healthier eating habits.
This year’s main event is augmented with city-wide community events following.
Hidden Harvest, our social media treasure hunt, returns this year with packaged cash, gift cards, and promotions hidden throughout Chicago and clues for finding them shared on social media. This fun adventure was a favorite for Chicagoans last year!
Food Day inspires people nationwide to consider their diets and our food policies. Food Day takes place every October 24th, perfectly timed for our farmer’s harvest celebrations and for everyone to consider food choices during the holidays.
Get involved! If your business is involved in health or food, you should be part of Chicago Food Day through sponsorships and volunteer participation. Share your expertise, manpower and products to help the Chicago community.
