World Food Day

October 16th is World Food Day, and to help bring awareness to hunger that strikes women and children around the world, Chef Art Smith is speaking about Women Thrive Worldwide.

With global food prices higher than ever, that number will only continue to grow. Women and girls, in particular, are hit hardest. They not only account for 1 in 6 of the world’s hungry, but also spend a staggering amount of their time and energy preparing meals for their families.
Right now, Congress is considering slashing programs that support women living in poverty around the world. They need to hear from you, that you think this is wrong. Here is how you can help in simple 3 steps:

Step 1: Join the Movement
Tell us a little bit about yourself here.

Step 2: Create a $2 Recipe
Worldwide, 2.5 billion people live on less than $2 a day. Women Thrive challenges you to make just one meal for that amount to call attention to the hunger epidemic that's threatening to impact even more women and girls worldwide. See sample recipes here. Provide your input and we’ll feature your recipe and bio on the Women Thrive website.

Step 3: Sign Art's Petition and Tell Your Friends!
We'll deliver a letter to Congress on behalf of all the chefs who joined the movement. Take action here.

It only takes minutes to sign the petition and get the word out! I hope you all join in this amazing effort!
