FACT Staff Presenting at Plant Chicago in the Back of the Yards Neighborhood

  • The Plant 1400 West 46th Street Chicago, IL, 60609 United States (map)

Come to the Plant Chicago Farmers' Market on Saturday, August 26th during their Farmer Appreciation Month to hear FACT's Chelsea Párraga and Sidney Freitag-Fey give a presentation on "How to Eat like a Compassionate Carnivore" from 11am-12pm. Plant Chicago's farmers market is located in the outdoor farm area at The Plant located at 1400 W 46th St., Chicago,. 

It’s no secret that most of our food today is raised on factory farms, but what about all the family farms who continue to raise livestock in healthy and humane conditions? This presentation explores what a family farm looks like in 2017, which labels in your grocery store you can trust, and how you can find responsible, humanely raised animal products directly from farmers.

Read up on Plant Chicago, and also note that prior Fund-a-Farmer Project grant recipient Chicago Patchwork Farms will be there selling their humanely raised products!
