When it comes to food and your health, the stakes are rising exponentially. A toxic food culture is fueling epidemic rates of chronic illness. If there’s ever been a time when we need to stay informed and take a stand, it’s right now. But there’s great news, too. You can radically extend your life span and decrease your chances of getting cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease and many other ailments - deliciously. Join Food Revolution Network CEO Ocean Robbins for a candid and inspiring look at the truth about food, and what you can do to be a powerful force for positive change. You'll find out what's really going on with GMOs, important breakthroughs in food and medical science, and how you can stand up for a food revolution in your life, and on your planet.
Ocean Robbins is co-founder and CEO of the 350,000+ member Food Revolution Network, adjunct professor in Chapman University’s Peace Studies Department, and co-author with his dad, bestselling author John Robbins, of Voices of the Food Revolution. He launched Youth for Environmental Sanity (YES!) at age 16, and directed the organization for 20 years. Ocean has spoken in person to more than 200,000 people and facilitated hundreds of gatherings for leaders from 65+ nations. He is a recipient of many awards, including the Freedom's Flame Award and the national Jefferson Award for Outstanding Public Service. Learn more about Ocean's work at foodrevolution.org

Support our Mission ~ HWCC Ventura is Becoming a Nonprofit!
This event is an annual fundraiser for the Holistic Wellness Community Center. In past years, this event has funded our Scholarships for the Optimal Wellness Program - teaching holistic wellness techniques and sustainable lifestyle practices to our community. This year, a majority of the proceeds from this event will help pay for the Holistic Wellness Community Center to transition to a Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation, which will assist us in achieving our mission to heal the community through wellness education. In addition, we are donating 10% of our profits to Arts for Earth Foundation - a nonprofit that helps local artists & earth-saving organizations with outreach and healing events like ours! By attending and sharing this event with your friends and family, you are supporting our mission!
