Who will honor the #HiddenFigures in the Food System? That's the question we posed in created the 1st Annual Awards to celebrating WANDA turning 1.

With the lack of leadership opportunities for women and girls especially of color, we are taking time to host this premiere event that honors women as luminary global changemakers, culinary innovators, pioneering nutritionists, and media makers impacting the food system from Africa to the Diaspora.

In commemorating Women’s History Month and National Nutrition Month, the esteemed honorees are recognized for breaking barriers from farm to table at this distinguished celebration. Held in the upscale historic Fraser Mansion located in DuPont Circle, the highly anticipated affair will feature a live musical performance by northern Nigerian artist, Ziriums. Invited guests will include dignitaries, entrepreneurs and academics from the Diaspora while enjoying a catered dinner reception.

Our esteemed honorees include former U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Sanders, CEO of FEEEDS, Celebrity Chef Elle Simone of America's Test Kitchen, Dr. Sunyatta Amen, serial entrepreneur and owner of Calabash Teahouse and Cafe, Linord Moudou, Health Producer of Voice of America's Africa 54 and America's Pioneer in Dietetics, Anne A. Walden. 

The purpose of this event is to fundraise for the "Where's WANDA?" initiative to inspire girls as future food leaders in Africa and the Diaspora like these phenomenal honorees. We need your support to bring awareness and action to create more Where's WANDA educational products to teach kids about health of African foods through the Where's WANDA? book series, learning games and toolkits for educators, health providers and parents. 

So far we crowdfunded our initial Where's WANDA? book with the help of family and friends and we want to continue to build. By 2030 WANDA's goal is to touch the lives of 1 million women and girls to educate, advocate and innovate for a better life, community and food system in Africa and the Diaspora.
