We celebrated animal-free chili on Saturday, February 25. Once again, the Cook-Off was incredibly popular!

More than 200 people came to judge chili at our 3rd Annual Vegan Chili Cook-Off! Here were the winners:

  1. Holly VerHage
  2. Betsy Born
  3. Diane Adams

Amazingly, the same competitors as last year won first and second place again! Twelve contestants entered their chili this year.

A few of the responses from attendees included:

  • "Helped me appreciate vegan food more"
  • "I am interested in a vegan diet"
  • "Soooo delicious. After 8 years vegetarian, gonna try (vegan)"

Thanks again to Seward Community Cafe for hosting the event. Attendees also enjoyed vegan corn bread and Chili for the 99% donated by volunteers and the Seward Co-op.

Thanks to the generous businesses that donated prizes: Galactic Pizza, Pizza Luce Seward, Common Roots Cafe, and Seward Co-op.

Thanks to Robin Garwood for hosting and to all the volunteers for making this event a success!
