All proceeds of the tickets go directly to the Frontera Farmer Foundation, non-profit committed to promoting small, sustainable farms serving the Chicago area by providing them with capital development grants.

Nonprofit organizations, such as the Frontera Farmer Foundation, devoted to the growth of sustainable farming are becoming more prevalent and necessary due to the increasing dominance of large corporations in the agricultural sector. Without small sustainable farmers, great local cuisine is unreachable.
