The James Beard Foundation's Taste America® Local Dish Challenge

We think you know the Local Dish drill by now: order a "Taste America Local Dish" at one of the contest's participating restaurants, snap it on your phone and upload it to Instagram, tagging your image with #JBFTasteAmerica and the suggested hashtag for your city. After the promotion ends on October 31, the city with the most uploads will receive $10,000 or 10 percent of funds raised nationally, whichever amount is higher, in the form of a donation to a local food charity.

Above is a snapshot of the current standings. Chicago has increased its lead, but there's still more than a month left for you to help your town win.

We'll keep posting updated standings every Monday until the fundraiser ends.
