It takes a village to raise WANDA.

Will you be our friend?

Let's imagine if we reclaimed our foodways, restored our health, and returned to our roots. Now let's make it a reality. Friends of WANDA understand the importance of transforming

women and girls into food sheroes.


Join the movement to educate, advocate, and celebrate the power of women and girls of African descent in leading and innovating the food system for healthier and sustainable communities.
