Women Feeding the World online gallery

Have you worked with women who help feed the world? From fields, to packinghouses, to markets, to businesses, to labs, to restaurants, to homes and plates: What are women's contributions to food, agriculture and nutrition?

We asked the UC Davis community to share compelling photos and stories about women’s roles in the food system, anywhere around the world or right here in California, as part of the event, "Women feeding the world: Farmers, Mothers, CEOs."

Below are select submissions to the event's online gallery from UC Davis students, staff members, faculty members, alumni, and the Davis community. Read more about the event.
