Women Food System Leaders: Vital Frontline Responders in the Fight for Zero Hunger

Women and girls are disproportionately impacted by food insecurity – a problem that has been magnified by COVID-19 – however, they also play a critical role in responding to the hunger pandemic that is shadowing COVID-19.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, The Global FoodBanking Network is shining a spotlight on women food systems leaders. Please join us for a conversation that will explore questions including:

  • How have these leaders ensured that food security is central to pandemic response, recovery, and rebuilding efforts?
  • What role do female food systems leaders play in creating more gender-equal food systems?
  • And how can we chart a path forward for a global food system that empowers women leaders and responds to the needs of all people?
