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 shined a spotlight on women food systems leaders and discussed:
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?
