Women In Focus #IWD2016


To celebrate International Women’s Day on the 8th March, MetMunch have teamed up with MMU Engage and asked some of the most inspirational women at Manchester Met to participate in our Women In Focus project.

The name has been chosen to tie in with the World Food Programme’s Focus On Women initiative, which looks at how food issues and shortages affect women globally: http://www.wfp.org/focus-on-women

We asked each participant for their favourite recipe and will hold a vote on @MetMUnch on 7th March to find out which is your favourite. All recipes will be hosted here on MetMUnch.com, and you can share your own recipes and photos with us using the hashtag #MMUWomenInFocus
