The Dish: Women in the Food Industry 2.0
“Be that next step. Make it so we don’t have to have this conversation anymore…”
–Cara Chigazola Tobin, Chef-Owner at Honey Road
Last November, The Dish, a panel discussion hosted by City Market at the Intervale Center, brought together four women working in the food and agriculture industry here in Vermont from roles in nonprofit, production, and culinary sectors. Even though challenges still exist in regard to women’s economic equality and gender biases, the panelists showed how women play a key role in Vermont’s food and agriculture communities. They talked about overcoming these challenges with perseverance, determination, and compassion. They expressed their ultimate vision of equality for women in food and agriculture: that one day, this conversation will no longer be necessary.
In the meantime, we are celebrating women leaders and continuing the conversation at the upcoming Dish: Women in the Food Industry 2.0. Meet the inspiring panel!
