Don’t Miss Our Last February Amuse!
Reimagine (peep our ED, Erin Boyle!)
The restaurant industry is changing for the better, not only for the benefit of workers struggling with mental health and financial woes but all of us who buy food and experience dining.
In this discussion, leaders from the food, beverage and hospitality space discuss initiatives and opportunities for growth and transformation, particularly how the industry is reimagining safer and braver workplaces. Topics will include how restaurants are addressing mental health, suicide, bereavement support, sexual harrassment, and poverty among staff. These initiatives not only impact workers, but also all of us who eat out and order in. Individuals or families spend approximately 40% of their food budgets on restaurants. Speakers include noted chefs and restaurateurs Erin Boyle, Jen Hidinger-Kendrick, and Bobbin Mulvaney. Author, food writer, and dining critic Kate Washington moderates.
This program is part of the February 2023 Reimagine Series “Food as Medicine: From Adversity to Abundance”, in which participants explore how both food and the hospitality industry transform loss into new pathways for growth and health.
We will be holding our first Annual Get Together on April 27th from 5:30 to 7:30 PMat Cableland in Denver. Chefs Billy and Chai, and our students, are preparing special hor d’oeuvres for your enjoyment.
Our inaugural keynote event will be a great opportunity to learn more about HWH, meet current students, mingle with others currently involved in the organization, while enjoying chef driven scratch made gourmet treats.
Hear directly from students on what makes the difference to restart their lives.
