The Come to the Table Dinner Series joins local chefs, farmers, innovators, and food advocates for three seasonal dinners at farm-to-table restaurants in Chicago. Each event includes a custom created farm-to-table menu, beverages, and lively discussion about the intersections of food, agriculture, and community. The series began in 2016 as a vehicle for discussing different food system topics over a shared meal at restaurants that also support sustainable local food & farms. Now in its third season, the series is presented by Angelic Organics Learning Center, Green City Market, and WBEZ 91.5 Chicago. All proceeds benefit the missions and work of the presenting non-profit organizations. Partner restaurants and purveyors are committed to sourcing locally and sustainably whenever possible.
