The Good Food Movement focuses on a simple assertion, eat better to live better. From locally sourced to sustainability, the foods we eat directly affects our daily lives. The Good Food Festival celebrates its 10th year sharing better choices available in the Chicago area.

On March 15, the UIC Forum will host the Good Food Festival from 10 am till 5 pm. This family friendly day will feature featuring a host of inspiring speakers, DIY workshops, chef demos by Rick Bayless, Paul Virant, Erling Wu-Bower and Jason Vincent, an interactive Kids Corner, Good Food Court, and exhibitor floor.

The Good Food movement can be defined as "Delicious, healthy, and accessible food produced as close to home as possible, by family farmers and producers that use sustainable, humane, and fair practices." By focusing efforts on this type of consumption, everyone benefits from the decision. From farmers who can increased business production to families who attain more robust food choices, the end result is a mutually beneficial outcome.

The Good Food Festival holds an annual multi-day event in the Spring. The festival offers classes, demonstrations, panels, and tours. Additionally, a celebration, Localicious, is held on Friday evening. This event is a celebration of the farmers who grow the food and the chefs who transform it.

The Good Food Festival will be held at the UIC Forum on Saturday, March 15. Tickets for this event are $10 when purchased online or $15 at the door.
