2009 Women's Feast

Event Date: 
March 22, 2009 - 14:30

What? Taking place at the Grand Hyatt, Melbourne, the 2009 IWDA Feast promises to be a night of delicious food, local wines and exciting entertainment, with all proceeds supporting International Women's Development Agency's (IWDA) work with women in Asia and the Pacific.

Who? Twenty renowned female chefs will come together on the night to cook for 400 guests, with tables of ten enjoying each of their three courses from a different chef. As well as sampling diverse foods from these leading female chefs, guests will enjoy local wine produced by twelve female winemakers representing vineyards around Victoria, and each guest will receive a goodies bag filled with products from generous supporting businesses!

Why? Where this food event is unique, is in its recognition of the critical importance of food security to human well being. Today, nearly 1 in 7 people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life, making hunger and malnutrition the number one risk to health worldwide - greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Of the most chronically hungry, over 60% are women.
As a fundraising event, Feast provides vital funds to support the work of IWDA; we recognise that food security depends on the empowerment of women. IWDA Feast acknowledges that: 'without women, we all go hungry'. So we invite you to come and celebrate the sustaining work of women worldwide with IWDA, at this fantastic Melbourne Food and Wine Festival event.
