Food Tank Tours

Food Tank Tours A new project of Food Tank to educate and create awareness about urban agriculture in your backyard! Currently in Chicago (more cities to be announced!)

Food Tank Tours establishes a greater connection between eaters, farmers, and producers of food in cities around the United States. We provide access to innovative urban agriculture projects, educate our guests about their place in a sustainable food system, and serve tasty, locally-grown food made by experienced chefs and cooks. Our tours appeal to people who value putting a face to their food and knowing the story of how it was grown and the journey it makes to our plates.
