All proceeds will benefit Edible Milwaukee’s mission: to amplify Milwaukee's achievements to food fans locally and nationwide; to highlight the unique cultural makeup of the city and pay homage to each group's contributions to our foodscape; and to honor Milwaukee's historical food traditions, whether they are in the past or being revitalized by new producers.
