International Women's Day

Thanks to Slow Food USA for celebrating International Women's Day and featuring women from around the country who are working towards a good, clean, fair food system! #IWD2016

"I am driven by the belief that everyone deserves access to good food. International Women's Day happens to also be my mother's birthday, which seems completely fitting given how powerful all of our mothers and grandmothers are in building community and culture through their kitchens and recipes. Today as we celebrate the contributions of women to farms, fields and kitchens around the world, let's also recognize that we have a long way to go to reaching a food system that is truly equitable. I am committed to carrying out the work of generations of women before us to feed our families, nourish our communities, and cultivate a just food system for all. " - Cortney Ahern, Slow Food Chicago
