Exactly one week ago, on Thursday, Jan. 31, more than 100 bold, brave (and hungry) women came together at Macy’s Home South Coast Plaza for the final installment of the three-part Local, Global & Me, a Women’s Empowerment Series.

The event was sponsored by Orange County United Way and Bank of America, and featured a special presentation promoting the power of prioritizing health and salubrious habits that can positively impact a community.
