2017 Come to the Table Dinner Series

Discuss our local food system with chefs, farmers, and innovators

This popular dinner series is BACK! We've partnered with Angelic Organics Learning Center to give you three new topics at three new restaurants! Enjoy a meal prepared by Chicago's best chefs while you connect with people who care about improving our food and the health of our communities.
