Almost 40 years ago, Audre Lorde wrote of an “extraordinary point of choice. To refuse to participate in the shaping of our future,” Lorde wrote, “is to give it up … Each of us must find our work and do it.”

For three days in late September, the Whole30 community gathered to listen, learn, absorb, and discuss the crucial ideas that will shape our future in food, health, wellness.
