Free Release Tuesday: Chicago French Market Sponsors The Good Food Project Oct. 2

Chicago French Market is proud to be among the first Chicago-area businesses to support the outstanding work of The Good Food Project, a not-for-profit organization that brings fun and interactive food tastings to schools to teach kids to become young food critics and help them develop a lifelong love of good food.

Join Chicago French Market as it welcomes the Good Food Project from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2. With help from Susan Taylor, a Chicago Tribune food critic, children will learn how to taste like a pro. Each child will be among the first in Chicago to taste the new SweeTango apple along with three other varieties of apples. Upon selecting their favorite apple, the children make an apple slinky to bring home to show friends and family. $5 donation to the Good Food Project per child ages 5-10 (includes one guardian) and tickets can be purchased at the door.

The Good Food Project’s mission is to introduce different flavors of produce to children in order to develop a lifelong love of good food and healthy living. Visit http://www.thegoodfoodproject.org/ for more information.

Chicago French Market’s support has already provided apple tastings to children at Cleveland Elementary School, Saint Ann Catholic School, CICS Longwood and CICS Washington Park with more to come. Chicago French Market vendors City Fresh Market, Produce Express and Chicago Organics provide produce for the event.
