James Beard Foundation's Taste America® Local Dish Challenge

It's time for another Local Dish standings update! Chicago is still in the lead, but Santa Barbara has continued to make impressive gains. It's still anyone's game, folks. 

A Local Dish refresher: 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.

We'll continue posting updated standings every week until the fundraiser ends.
