Meetings

Let’s talk about it!

CHOW group discussions are open to all – chef, servers, bussers, bartenders, owners, suppliers, farmers, writers, dishwashers, and industry veterans. Virtual meetings can be accessed from any location, please be aware of the time zones listed.

Our meetings have a topic or theme to consider and discuss. They begin with an ice breaker question, so we can get to know each other better, and move into a conversation about shared experiences. We have an “EXPO” (who is a person who has walked the path of recovery from mental illness/substance use disorder and is trained to assist others in their recovery) in each meeting who can guide the conversation. Sharing is VOLUNTARY and sobriety is NOT required. (See below for our recorded speakers.)

CHOW has partnered with Servicios de la Raza. Servicios de La Raza’s mission is to build and cultivate a thriving Colorado Latino community in which all members have the opportunities, and the support systems to achieve equity, self-sufficiency, and self-determination to lead a healthy quality of life. Since its founding 50 years ago, Servicios has continued to respond to the unmet needs of the most vulnerable members of the Denver community through programs for: behavioral health, youth, victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and general crime, individuals living with HIV, mental health, substance abuse, health access, ex-offender reintegration, workforce development and financial empowerment, statewide initiatives that target Latino youths and families throughout Colorado, and basic emergency services for people experiencing crisis situations.

Servicios continues to serve the most vulnerable members of the community who live on the margins and rarely have access to culturally responsive human services. Servicios is now the preeminently recognized comprehensive health and human services agency addressing the needs of the Latino and other underserved and marginalized communities across the Denver metropolitan area and Colorado, providing services to more than 30,000 people a year.

Normalize the Mental Health Conversation

Group discussions help put people at ease. They prevent disease, help people manage chronic disease, help us cope with stress or emotional or psychological challenges. Did you know that not talking to another person for one day is worse for your physical and mental health than smoking a pack of cigarettes a day! CHOW offers a community that knows what you’re going through and the unique challenges of our industry. Let’s talk about it.
