It's Fall and time to harvest – the Chicago Food Day way! We bring Chicago a Hidden Harvest with packages of valuable gift certificates, cash and much more hidden around the city just waiting for you and your friends to claim them. Simply watch the Chicago Food Day web site, tweets and posts to get clues for different Hidden Harvest drops. We’ll share clues to help you track a particular drop. You and your friends can have fun tracking and share pics and posts of your adventures along the way! If you find someone’s beaten you to one Hidden Harvest, don’t give up! There are multiple Hidden Harvest drops scheduled. And when you find your Hidden Harvest, don’t forget to share the goods with friends, family and even complete strangers – everyone should enjoy the Chicago Food Day Hidden Harvest!

To make this after-school program happen, PGP has launched a fundraising campaign to cover expenses required to host the program in their kitchen space. They're past the halfway mark, but have just 7 days to raise $1,600. This is your chance to help kids learn how to eat better. It won’t take much if we all pitch in. Here's the link, please share and donate if you can! https://www.ioby.org/project/peterson-garden-project-kids-kitchen
