A mother’s daunting task is a first-hand account of Cat Cora’s visit to the Angoche estuary highlighting her life as a mother, a chef and a food security advocate. As a part of Devex’s Future Fortified series, Cat Cora writes that “motherhood is a universal concept”, describing what she experienced during her recent visit and calling to action supporting the United States’ Global Food Security Act of 2015 (S.1252 and H.R. 1567). The legislation requires a comprehensive and coordinated strategy for global food security that focuses on women and smallholder producers and leverages best natural resource management practices.

The publication coincided with the launch of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Goal number two calls to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture, which directly relates to the work done at Primeiras e Segundas through the FFS.

Cat Cora is Food Network’s Iron Chef first female winner and the founder of the non-profit organization,Chefs for Humanity. Read her account by clicking here.
