Eat Retreat is an inclusive community of people working in food and agricultural. Our mission is to empower personal and professional growth through collaboration and immersive events, strengthening the food system within the communities we touch.

People in the culinary world speak a special language, and we are all connected through food. We each leave our own mark in the world, but together we are a powerful force in helping to determine what we eat now, and what we will eat in the future.
