Good Food Festival, making good food fun for families

The Good Food Festival is coming to Chicago on Saturday, March 17 at UIC Forum. From 10 am till 6 pm, everyone can peruse the festival to learn more about farm to table and the importance of eating locally produced good for your food. 

The Good Food Festival is part of This organization's mission is to expand the production, marketing, and distribution of locally grown and responsibly produced food in order to enhance the social, economic, and environmental health of our communities.

All day Saturday over 100 vendors will be sampling some locally produced delicacies for everyone to enjoy. There will be chef demos, workshops on growing and making food and tons of family related activities.

My family will be attending the Good Food Festival. For me, I want to teach my children the importance of having healthy food choices in their diet. If I introduce my children to these better choices early in life, I hope to instill good habits for a lifetime.

Since kids tend to learn well in a playful evirnonment, the Good Food Festival is offering a special Kids Corner.  At the kids corner, there will be Good Food Scavenger Hunt, arts and crafts, story time, face painting and much more. All the Kids Corner events are sponsored by Purple Asparagus, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing families back to the table.

Tickets for the Good Food Festival can be purchased on-line or on the day of the event. Tickets are $20 at the door. Children under the age of 12 are free.

Bring the family to the Good Food Festival Chicago this Saturday, March 17 at UIC Forum to learn more about healthy eating and all our amazing local purveyors. I'll be tweeting from the event on Saturday. Feel free to send me your thoughts or tips on great exhibits - @more4momsbuck.
