I was recently interviewed by Jill Harrigan of the Denver Vegetarian Examiner. It has some good background info about Chomp and P&A, so check it out…
So, you’ve heard your vegetarian friends talking about the monthly Chomp event that takes place in Denver, but you’ve never been. This coming week is the perfect time to show up, since it’s Chomp’s 1st birthday celebration! To get an idea of what you’ll be in for, I interviewed one of the organizers – Mark Hagelberg.
Jill Harrigan: Hey there! Thanks for talking to us about the Chomp event that is taking place next Wednesday, April 6th at 7pm. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Mark Hagelberg: I help organize Chomp each month along with Josh Labure and Donald Reinhard. Basically, I try to make sure our cooks get everything they need, and then I run around for two days trying to get all the logistical stuff ready for the event.
JH: Chomp is a monthly community dinner that is 100% vegan friendly. It was created by the nonprofit organization Plants & Animals. That said, I think it’s important for readers to understand what Plants & Animals is all about. Can you give us some insight?
MH: Plants & Animals Denver is a grassroots nonprofit advocacy group that is essentially trying to help build the vegan scene in Denver. We are all volunteers who want to share our love for the plant-based lifestyle by hosting community events like Chomp and movie screenings. It all comes down to helping animals by promoting veganism. And we try to do that through business outreach and targeted campaigns.
