Around the world, every day, thousands of amazing individuals contribute to making our food systems better for people and the planet. They give of their time, their skills, their resources, and their passion to help achieve good food for all.
As a network, the Chefs’ Manifesto is passionate about advocating for good food for all. Through the Action Plan, chefs can discover ways to help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, but also how to connect with other chefs who have similar passions.
One of the Chefs’ Manifesto eight thematic areas is investing in livelihoods. In doing this, chefs aim to advocate for equality and equity, seeking to include all people, embrace diversity, celebrate inclusion, seek positive change, and be part of the solution. International Women’s Day specifically celebrates women around the world, through the lens of a theme. This year’s theme ‘embrace equity’ looks to focus on creating an inclusive world.
Celebrating food champions from around the world, we spoke with several people from across the Chefs’ Manifesto network, asking them how they embrace equity as food champions, seeking to be part of advocating for good food for all. We are thankful for each of their unique perspectives and sharing their wisdom with us all.
