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

It's time for another Local Dish Challenge standings update! Chicago's lead has widened since our last check-in, but we've got just over a week left, so keep those entries coming!

How this all works: 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.
