Responsible Eating And Living was just a dream less than five years ago. And together look how far we’ve come! We are excited to present to you the end of the year report.
In a very short time we have created and published a diverse catalog of original content. We’ve archived almost 500 interviews with experts in the plant-based food movement, most of which are now transcribed! In addition to our radio show It’s All About Food, we’ve produced: over 400 original recipes; a daily blog about celebrating what vegans eat; a video library of 40 food shows, news reports and visits to veg hotspots across the country; an original musical; a full length documentary The Lone Vegan Preaching to the Fire, which now has over 5600 views – all from our one bedroom apartment here in New York City!
As the cliché goes, we are showing no signs of slowing down. In 2016 we want to continue doing what we started in 2011 and we also want to grow. Our long-term plans include acquiring our own space that will serve as: our film and video production studio; live performance venue; commercial kitchen for demos, training and manufacturing. We also intend on obtaining professional orchestrations, sets and costumes for our original musical, Hartglass & De Mattei: The Swingin’ Gourmets.
To help us go to the next level creating content and programs that will reach more people we need significant financial assistance. That’s where you can help. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today so that REAL can carry on its vital mission.
Happy New Year,
Caryn Hartglass & Gary De Mattei
