2022 FIA Cares Great Tastes of Chicago

Benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository

15 November 2022 • 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM CT • Sheraton Grand Chicago Riverwalk

Wrap up your Expo 2022 experience by giving back! FIA is hosting the Great Tastes of Chicago benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository on 15 November 2022 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago Riverwalk. Make the most of this final networking opportunity at Expo 2022 to connect with executives from the futures, options and centrally cleared derivatives community all while providing valuable financial support to help feed those in need. 

This year's event features a carefully crafted tasting menu plus entertainment from our very own industry band - Pork Belly & The Out-Trades. Featuring FIA's very own Walt "Pork Belly" Lukken on trombone, the band is uniting for the first time since Expo 2019. A must-see whenever they gather, Pork Belly & The Out-Trades rounds out its lineup with executives from leading firms in the industry. 

Since 2008, FIA has raised more than $4.2M for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The Food Depository, founded in 1979, makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 700 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger. Last year, the Food Depository distributed nearly 100 million meals - the largest amount in its 42-year history!

Registration is closed.
