Meet Jesse Johnson—CAA volunteer extraordinaire 

September 21, 2023

Jesse has been a dedicated Twin Cities Veg Fest volunteer for over four years. This year, his role was coordinator of our Zero Waste efforts. He also helped plan the first Twin Cities Plant-Based Bike Crawl on August 12th. At the event he was a lead biker to guide folks on the route! In addition, he helps the Tech Team maintain CAA’s websites.

Twin Cities Veg Fest started in 2012 and was held at the University of Minnesota. This is when Jesse discovered and started attending Veg Fest. He enjoys volunteering and wants to continue inspiring folks to try plant-based eating. He views it as a great way to benefit the planet, animals, and our health.

When asked about his favorite vegan restaurant, he replied,” It’s fitting that one of my favorite vegan restaurants in Minneapolis (Francis) is named after a Propagandhi song (Potemkin City Limits) as I’ve listened to the band since high school (very long ago).”

Join us in thanking Jesse for all he does for CAA!
