Food Events in Chicago

Chicago has a rich agriculture and food history

Chicago is home to the Chicago Board of Trade, several Fortune 500 food and agriculture companies, and a growing number of incubators launching the next generation of food start-ups. FEAD seeks to provide members with multiple opportunities to engage with the Chicago food community through events and through ongoing partnerships with local organizations such as the Good Food Business Accelerator.
