Food: we can't get through a day without it. The way we produce it and consume it has monumental implications on not just our personal health, but our societal and planetary well-being as well.

What if we started to re-think food? Our relationship to it - how we use it to heal - how we mass produce it (or how we don't)... all of these factors will be examined with this forward-thinking and diverse group of food disruptors.

Come hear how these trailblazers have improved the unhealthy food in hospitals, putting people over profits in the food business, and making sure that people have access to healthy food in underserved populations. You'll come away inspired.
