Leghorn sandwich benefits Pride Action Tank youth homeless projects

A collaboration between Chicago singer Taylor Bennett and Chef Jared Van Camp, a new specialty chicken and waffle sandwich presents Van Camp's elevated chef spin on Leghorn's classic hot chicken thigh housed between two of The Winchester's celebrated Belgium-style liege waffles layered with maple jalapeño butter and smoked bacon.

While the sandwich collab officially debuted at the second annual Taste Talks Chef BBQ Oct. 2, Leghorn will keep the sandwich exclusively on the menu at its Ukrainian Village location, 959 N. Western Ave., for $8 the two weeks following the event—10% of proceeds from every sandwich sold will directly support the youth homeless work of Chicago-based LGBTQIA advocacy group Pride Action Tank. An active supporters of gay rights, Bennett (also a Chicago-native) chose Pride Action Tank because of the group's work helping LGBTQIA and other homeless youth through a collaborative process of inquiry, advocacy and action.

Leghorn Chicken is Element Collective's socially conscious chicken shop in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood. A fast casual, BYOB concept featuring fried chicken sandwiches by Chef Jared Van Camp, Leghorn supports local and sustainable farmers and artisans and proudly and enthusiastically champions gay rights, with a portion of profits donated to organizations to support the cause. In the fall of 2014, Leghorn launched Leghorn Cafe, a breakfast-focused, fast-casual shop located in Chicago's River North neighborhood at 600 N. LaSalle St. See www.leghornchicken.com .
