Healthy-eating education does not stop at the classroom door.

Over the years, Purple Asparagus has engaged tens of thousands of kids, adults and families through health fairs, farmers markets, special classes and other community events, including the Good Food Expo, Epicurious Entertains Chicago, Chicago Kids Day, and many more.

In collaboration with several community-based health and social justice partners, Purple Asparagus seeks to improve the health of all of Chicago’s children and provides programming to groups large and small, regardless of race, religion, color, location, ability, access and/or means.


If you are interested in bringing Purple Asparagus to your next community event, please contact our Adventure Spear, Rachael Morkunas for more information.
