Wild Garden® Foods is hitting the road and sharing its love of Mediterranean food by giving back to the community with free meals. It’s all part of an epic four-day food truck tour, May 15-18, through the city of Chicago, including stops at popular destinations and places in need. Facebook “likes” will power the Social Kitchen Tour so for every new “like” on the company’s page, a free lunch or dinner will be served. Four local celebrities will be onboard to hand out the free meals and exciting giveaways to lucky patrons dining at the truck.

“We couldn’t be more excited to launch the Wild Garden® Social Kitchen Tour to share our food with those searching for new flavors and to those in need of a meal. It’s a remarkable feeling to help feed someone no matter where you live through the power of social media,” comments Co-Founder of Wild Garden®, Nezar Ziyad.

Wild Garden® hopes to serve over 5,000 free hot, Mediterranean meals made with the company’s foods, snacks and sweets. The truck’s schedule will be announced each morning on the company’s Facebook page and the first 50 people in line will get a tote bag full of Wild Garden® goodies. Patrons will also have a chance to win free Wild Garden® food for a year!

Members of the Wild Garden® team along with local celebrities will serve Chicagoans during two shifts. During the lunch shift, the truck will be parked in busy lunch areas, while the evening shift will focus on a soup kitchen or shelter.
