Greetings Bacon-nation:

We hope you are enjoying your summers!

We at Baconfest Chicago wanted to help get the word out about this great event that our friends at THE PUBLICAN are putting together.  They’ve been AMAZING to Baconfest Chicago.  Let’s get out there and help make their efforts for charity a huge success!

They’re hosting a Food Drive for the Greater Chicago Food Depository – who you may recall was the beneficiary of our April 10th Bacon-extravaganza.  (see Baconfest Chicago Raises $5000 for Greater Chicago Food Depository.)

When:  This Saturday June 26th from 1:30-3:30pm.  Be there!

Andre Vonbaconvitch and the Baconfest Chicago Team.

Hello everyone-
Thank you to all those that came out to support the food drive this past February. Because of the great success and overwhelming response to continue these drives, we are just around the corner from the 2nd one!
We would like to ask our restaurant friends and extended family for your support again this coming Saturday, June 26th as The Publican will host a Food Drive for Greater Chicago Food Depository from 1:30pm-3:30pm. If you have the opportunity to, please stop by and donate any canned or non-perishable items that you can. We will be serving complimentary Hannah’s Bretzel snacks and Goose Island beer for those who donate!
Thanks again in advance. Your support will help over 600,000 people in the Chicagoland area be able to have a meal for themselves and their families.
