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.  And have been described as “a post-shift hang out without the drinks.”  We also have a Peer Support Specialist (is a person who has walked the path of recovery from mental illness/substance use disorder and is trained to assist others in their journeys of recovery) in each meeting. Your attendance supports and motivates our passion for connection and we hope we can do the same in return. (See below for our recorded speakers.)

Cada semana el día Martes. Las reuniones son organizadas por LARA. Lara es una Organización sin fines de lucro que promueve soluciones en salud mental y adicción, organizando comunidades con la información para crear recursos en Español sobre salud mental y adicción. Creando conciencia en la cultura sobre la importancia de romper con el estigma y otras barreras que impiden a la persona buscar ayuda.

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.
