Students attend city’s Cultivate festival with help from Center for Chicago Programs

The Center for Chicago Programs invited students to attend Cultivate, a free food, ideas, and music festival, on Saturday, September 15 in Chicago.

The purpose of promoting the event was twofold: Not only was it a way to support the College’s food theme, but it also encouraged students to get to Chicago, said Jennifer Larsen, coordinator for the Center for Chicago Programs.

The center covered the transportation costs of the 30 students who attended and hopes to offer many similar opportunities in the future.

The festival, sponsored by Chipotle Mexican Grill, brought together food, farmers, chefs, artisans, thought leaders, and musicians for demonstrations, performances, and mingling.
