86 Hunger at Eataly Chicago

86 Hunger at Eataly Chicago

Each year, one in six Chicago residents — over 800,000 people — look to the Greater Chicago Food Depository to receive food through one of their multi-faceted programs.

This September, Hunger Action Month, Eataly is joining the fight to "86 Hunger" in Chicago with "A Farm A Day," a series featuring a different local farm every day in our produce department and at Baffo Ristorante

Located on the second floor, Eataly Chicago's produce department is hosting representatives from each farm. Guests are invited to stop by, enjoy complimentary samples of their fresh produce, and gain insight about daily life on the farm.

In addition, our fresh produce provider, Testa, has committed to donating $1,000 to the Greater Chicago Food Depository's fight to "86 Hunger." This contribution will give 3,000 meals to Chicagoans in need.

Not sure how to use your fresh produce at home? Taste the daily special at Baffo! Inspired by each farm's fresh produce, the chef of Baffo, Samuel De Los Santos, is creating a different dish every day, from a filled pasta to a delicious dessert.

The best part? Ten percent of the proceeds will go directly to the Greater Chicago Food Depository's "86 Hunger" campaign.

Make reservations at Baffo and help us end the fight against hunger here!
