If we're being honest, deciding on where to eat lunch can be one of the toughest decisions of the day. Wild Garden Food Truck understands that struggle and is offering an easy solution for Chicagoans this week: free lunch today through Thursday.

The Nationwide food truck tour is powered by Facebook likes, and for every new "like" on the the company's Facebook page, a free Mediterranean lunch or dinner will be served. Over the next four days, the truck will make stops at popular lunchtime destinations (like Daley Plaza and University of Chicago) along with places in need, including Mercy Home for Boys & Girls and You Can Make It Women and Children Shelter. 

Each stop is anchored by a Chicago "celebrity," and you can find Time Out Chicago on the truck on Tuesday at Michigan Avenue and Monroe Street. Here's the complete schedule (a.k.a. where to find free lunch this week).
