Wellness depends upon the food we eat in our day-to-day lives as well as where the food comes from.

Wellness is about mental, physical, and spiritual well-being, engaging the mind, fueling the body, and nurturing the spirit. We cannot do that without food and beverage, two bare necessities for everyone’s survival. They are fuel for our minds and bodies. By sourcing locally, respecting dietary needs, choosing more plant-based options, and offering more time to eat and connect, we can empower attendees with better health, mindful eating and overall wellness.
