I can't remember how to update a theme without losing all my content....help!
There's generally no reason to ever update a child theme since all core functionality derives from the Genesis Framework.
The theme does not store content. All website content is stored in WordPress tables.
If you have custom code (CSS, PHP, jQuery), it has to be transferred manually to a new theme before updating otherwise your customizations will be lost.
One of the values of the Genesis framework is that you can update Genesis (& WordPress) without impacting any of your customizations.
Your child theme however will lose any customizations (they can certainly be added back) if you update.
Food Pro is a community marketplace theme. Community marketplace theme developers support their themes directly. As the creators, they will be most familiar with the theme and be able to provide you with the best support. You can check in with the folks at Feast Design.
