What We Eat Matters

At a time when tens of thousands of people in our region aren’t sure where their next meal will come from, obesity is a growing epidemic too.

At Gulf Coast, we have embarked on a new initiative with All Faiths Food Bank to address the challenges of hunger and nutrition in our community. Join us as Dr. Andrew Weil, a world-renowned expert on healthy living, frames these entwined issues for us by discussing why what we eat matters.

Hosted at The Francis, the event facility of the Seidensticker family’s new establishment in Sarasota, our luncheon will feature a specially prepared menu based on Dr. Weil’s nutrition and healthy cooking philosophies. Immediately after the event, Dr. Weil will sign copies of his new book True Food: Seasonal, Sustainable, Simple, Pure, which will be available for purchase from BookStore1 Sarasota.
