In the winter months, it’s hard to imagine anything growing in Chicago, let alone greenhouses full of spinach and other greens.

A 501(c)3 organization that is Black and women-led, Urban Growers Collective (UGC) was founded in 2017 by Laurell Sims and Erika Allen to cultivate nurturing environments.

Dion’s Chicago Dream: From Unhoused Veteran to Tackling Food Insecurity 
Edible Chicago Magazine
by 77 Flavors

When we first met Dion, the founder of Dion’s Chicago Dream, he had just finished setting up his non-profit. It was two years ago at one of our favorite pizza shops, Vito and Nick’s. We had just sat down and were reviewing questions when he walked in and introduced himself. We had seen some of his work through social media and were familiar with the Dream Fridge in Englewood, a public refrigerator that he would fill with fresh produce for the neighborhood. What we didn’t know was that Dion was a veteran himself who once experienced food insecurity and homelessness, and was now packing boxes of ..read more

I am on the phone with Dileep Gangolli, the co-owner of the Green Grocer, a small upscale convenience store located in the West Loop. His voice is kind and thoughtful as he tells me about all the ways he’s had to change his store in the past few years. He used to stock more things such as fresh groceries, but he’s had to slim down his inventory and instead focuses on pantry staples, local beers, and imported wines that offer a good quality for price. “A lot of people adopted online grocery delivery as a permanent change,” said Gangolli. “With more of our customers working from home, we get les ..read more

Eight Years In with Loba Pastry + Coffee
Edible Chicago Magazine
by Laura Scherb
1M ago
On the corner of Addison and Lincoln, under a criss-crossing of train tracks, a small miracle unfolds every day as Loba Pastry + Coffee serves imaginative baked goods from behind wintery fogged-up windows. The pastries on offer are surprising in flavor and flawless in technique. The coffee is strong, and the vibe is just right—especially because laptops are banned. And if this all seems like an exciting, new development, then rest assured: it’s not.  In fact, Loba celebrated eight years of business in January. Loba, owned by Valeria Socorro Velazquez Lindsten, could be likened to a phoeni ..read more

Over the summer when our family from Jordan came to visit, we decided to treat them to a day at the Oak Park Conservatory. Our drive to the conservatory, as you might imagine, took us through the Austin neighborhood. And the moment we passed from Austin to Oak Park, the shock on our visitors’ faces was impossible to miss.  It sparked a big, but not infrequent, discussion: why do such evident disparities exist between bordering neighborhoods?   To answer these questions, we need to understand Chicago’s history of segregation. Generations have grappled with the consequences of red ..read more
