Whetstone Magazine debuted in the spring of 2017 with the mission of championing food to expand human empathy. Whetstone works with a team of global creatives representing over a dozen countries. As a minority-owned publisher, we’re proud to say this venture is led by a team of women and people of color. We believe that diversity isn’t just noteworthy, it’s what makes our work so essential.

It is our hope that people will choose at least one group to get involved with a long term commitment. Most of these groups need member, volunteers, and donors. Please give deeply of your time and resources. More people need to do more
