FOOD BOYS is a collaboration between artist Marc Fischer (of Temporary Services, Half Letter Press, and Public Collectors), Chicago Public School teacher Katy Jung, and students from North-Grand High School in Chicago. The project was funded through Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education's (CAPE) SCALE Program. The booklet is described by its student authors as follows:
"If you ever go through a break up, and you are feeling depressed, just look through FOOD BOYS, find the description of the boy that you just broke up with, and eat that food to make you feel better."
All publisher proceeds from sales of this booklet will go towards snacks and food during afterschool work sessions or on field trips!

Beware The Pizza Boy-
I learned how to love and who to love from Food Boys. Kudos to everyone involved- I bought multiple so I could distribute them about to my friends.
