The American Cheese Revolution is coming to Chicago

The American Cheese Revolution is coming to Chicago

We eat a lot of cheese at our house. Lots of it. But not all cheeses are created equally (obviously). And many cheeses are full of processed gunk that isn’t good for kids (or their parents for that matter). For this reason, we buy a lot of Organic Valley cheese (and other dairy).  If you are an Organic Valley fan, there is a local opportunity to learn more about their products and health initiatives.

Organic Valley’s American Cheese Revolution Tour,, a multi-city mobile tour and online pledge drive inviting parents to demand real food for real kids, is headed to Chicago October 19-21. Chicago foodies and families are invited to meet up with the tour to sample grilled cheese sandwiches, play in the photo booth and sign the Real Food Pledge. Organic Valley has committed to donate $1(up to $25,000) for each signature to Healthy Child Healthy World.

Check out one of these local Chicago tour stops:

  • Whole Foods Market, Schaumburg, Oct. 19, 3-6 p.m.

The American Cheese Revolution Tour began in California on August 21 and ends in Illinois this week, having stopped in Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and North Carolina along the way. Tour stops include family events, retail locations and other community venues, where families can enjoy grilled cheese sandwiches, giveaways, and kids’ activities, while learning about the Real Food for Real Kids pledge and Healthy Child Healthy World’s mission.
