Please join us! Chicago Chefs Cook will host a migration-focused panel of civic and culinary leaders on November 9th, 4:30-6:00pm at the Pendry Hotel, to discuss a solution-oriented dialogue. Speakers include Diego Angulo Martinez, Consul General of Colombia; Steve Wiley and Veronica Saldana, Pilsen Food Pantry; Victoria Infante, CPS Community Manager; Felipe Ospina from Sysco; Laurell Sims from Urban Growers Collective; and Chef Art Smith. There is a suggested donation to attend this event.

About Chicago Chefs Cook
Chicago Chefs Cook, led by James Beard Award-winning Chef Sarah Stegner, Eda Davidman, Jodi Fyfe, and Darren Gest, has unified Chicago chefs to raise over a million dollars for causes such as the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, earthquake relief in Syria and Turkey, and most recently, the wildfires in Maui. Now, the Chicago Chefs Cook team turns their attention to the severe lack of essential resources facing the growing number of migrants in Chicago.
