Food Tank takes groups into the heart of downtown Chicago to explore the area’s parks and culinary hot spots. Begin by sampling upscale Italian food at Terzo Piano before heading to the Park Grill for American food. End the excursion with a bite at Hilton Chicago before having lunch at the Field Bistro in the Field Museum. See an example of the seasonal menu here (menu is subject to change).
Along the way, groups learn about Chicago’s urban farm scene and check out landmarks suchs as Pritzker Pavilion and Buckingham Fountain. After the eating is done, customers are invited to remain at the Field Museum and enjoy the exhibits.
Tours depart from Millennium Park at 11 a.m., Wednesdays–Sundays. Reservation must be made in advance in order to participate in the tour.

Their ambitions are global, but the organization also promotes awareness and change on the local level. Food tours spotlight upscale restaurants that use locally sourced ingredients. Some tours even stop off at urban growers that practice sustainable farming and eco-friendly methods of food disposal. In the end, Food Tank strives to eliminate hunger, obesity, and poverty through all that it does.
