Guerrilla Food is an evolving practice and is multifaceted. It is Thursday night farm-to-table dinners in a community garden in North Corktown; it is pop-up brunches; it is personal chef work and catering; it is workshops and classes. At its core, it is providing food that nourishes the body and soul, restores the spirit and replenishes our vital energy sources. Guerrilla Food is Food as Medicine.
They offer catering and in the fall/winter, they offer ready-made meals for you to take home with you. Each Sunday, you will receive an update with the upcoming week's menu.
