Food Stars – 15 Women Stirring Up the Food Industry is part of the new Women of Power series published by Chicago Review Press. This modern-day biography series profiles 15 diverse women who are changing the world in their fields while empowering others to follow their dreams.
Food Stars features farmers, chefs, food activists, food storytellers, and food scientists who have developed fascinating careers—from operating a 20-acre farm, to fighting for food justice, to finding creative ways for astronauts to eat in space. These amazing women are hardworking, dedicated, creative, and caring individuals who use their heads, hearts, and hands to shed light on the ever-changing food industry with all its sweet and savory sides.
Women help build important cultural food traditions that are passed down for generations. And if there’s not enough accessible and nutritious food for all? It’s often women who speak up for change and initiate the problem-solving process.
