Empowering women to lead, nourish and enact change
Across the developing world, women make up 43% of the agricultural labour force, and mothers are the main influence when it comes to the nutrition and health of their children and families.
Yet, of the 821 million undernourished people in the world, 60% are women and girls.
What can we do about it?
Food banking seeks to redress this balance by empowering women to lead, nourish and enact change. The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) works with food banks in over 40 countries and believes in empowering women in leadership roles through food banking.
Women, when given the same resources as men, are a driving force against hunger, malnutrition and poverty. Enabling women and girls as leaders encourages them to fight against hunger and drive food security change in their communities.
And through increasing the food security of women and girls, they will go on to play a pivotal role in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals – no poverty, zero hunger, quality education and gender equality.
