Illinois Food Policy Teach-In

What’s happening on the state level for food and urban agriculture issues? Join Chicago Food Policy Action Council (CFPAC) and community partners at this popular-education-style event to learn more about what is on deck for this legislative session. From cannabis to hoop houses to soil testing, we’ll give you the low-down on issues and discuss the challenges and opportunities to push for change on the state level. Break bread with us and learn how to get involved in the fight for our food. This event is open to all interested in improving Illinois’ local food system.

Spanish-language interpretation will be provided. The venue is located up three flights of stairs. If you need an elevator or any type of assistance to access the space, please email us at
