We are happy to introduce “Five Brands Worth Taking Your Mask Off For This Week,” a joint project of Naturally Chicago and SPINS (a Naturally Chicago co-founder). Comfort food is a big thing for people who have been staying home for weeks to be safe. Can Good Food be comfort food? You bet it can, and these first five Chicago-based brands will make you happy while keeping you healthy!

Have a favorite local brand you would like to see highlighted? Let us know at info@naturallychicago.org.
