Looking for a reason to ingest a giant burrito today? Here’s a good one: 59 Chipotles in the metro area are hosting a fundraiser for Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture today from 5 to 8 PM.

If you mention the fundraiser with your order, Chipotle will donate 50 percent of each sale (up to $15,000) to Arcadia. The program will use a portion of the proceeds to create eight scholarships for kids to attend their first Farm Camp.

Arcadia is a non-profit farming and food initiative dedicated to creating a sustainable food system and culture in the DC area. They run an educational farm, a mobile market, a farm to school network and other programs.

Marissa was born and bred in New Jersey, but moved to DC for undergrad at GWU (Go Colonials, go!), fell in love with the District and learned that there was life and civilization beyond New York City. She loves eating at white-tablecloth-three-forks-at-your-place-setting restaurants, but she’ll also be the first to suggest we scarf down some chili dogs at 2 am. Simply put, she loves all things food. You can also read about why she loves DC. Follow her on Twitter and email her at mbialecki (at)
