Also I couldn't finish writing the entry without telling you about the food. Some of the food donated at the walk was from a vegan restaurant in Chicago called Native Foods Cafe. They gave the walk attendees a $5 gift card to use so of course my hubby and I had to try them out. When in Chicago we usually visit The Chicago Diner, but we were very happy that we decided to step out of our food comfort zone this time around. Native Foods Cafe (http://www.nativefoods.com/) was founded in 1994 and they serve fresh homemade vegan meals daily. The atmosphere was comfortable and friendly and the menu was tasty and reasonably priced. While waiting in line we were treated to samples of their two drinks Lavender Lemonade and Watermelon Fresca. We ended our lunches with a chocolate love pie and cheesecake. We will defiantly be vising there again.
I wanted to give you some wonderful pictures to look at from our day at the Walk. Hopefully next year we can see you there!!
