In celebration of this week’s National Food Day, Chipotle Mexican Grill is hosting a fundraiser to benefit Piedmont Park's Education Garden.
On Wednesday, Oct. 24, dine at any Atlanta-area Chipotle from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and 100 percent of the proceeds, up to $10,000, will benefit the Education Garden at Piedmont Park, which is sponsored by the restaurant.
With 17 locations across the city, Chipotle is committed to sourcing the highest quality ingredients that are raised responsibly and grown sustainably with care for the land, the animals and the farmers that make the food.
Chipotle locations near Midtown Patch readers include 718 Ponce de Leon Ave., 3424 Piedmont Ave., and 2020 Howell Mill Road. To find the Chipotle nearest to you, see here.
Produce from the Piedmont Park Conservancy's Education Garden, which is visited by more than 800 children each year and is used to teach a variety of topics surrounding natural and organic gardening methods, is regularly sold at the Green Market through December 8.
The nationwide Food Day celebration aims to strengthen and unify the food movement in order to improve our nation’s food policies.
