“Chicago Food To Go started as a social media initiative as a way to connect with our viewers, support local restaurants and share some ideas for great takeout while we shelter in place. We started with user-generated videos from local comedians, radio personalities and restaurants,” said Steve Bailey, Head of Local Programming and Creative.
“The videos are real people talking about one of Chicagoans’ greatest passions, their food. We are delivering Chicago Food To Go on multiple broadcast platforms to maximize our support for local restaurants.”
The broadcast features social media videos shot by hungry locals sharing their carryout order experiences as well as local restaurants showing off the best of its menus.

Nonna Silvia's Trattoria & Pizza
Riganato Old World Grille
