The 2014 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference will be held March 2-4, 2014 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. Registration will open in late November.
The National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference draws anti-hunger and anti-poverty advocates; federal, state and local government officials; child advocates; representatives of food banks and food rescue organizations; and nutrition and anti-obesity groups, for three days of training, networking and Capitol Hill advocacy.
Participants share information and learn how to strengthen the quality and reach of federal nutrition programs, learn best outreach and program practices from other states and localities, fill in the gaps in food service for millions of low-income children, and identify creative ideas for new and innovative approaches to ending hunger. Members of Congress, Hill staff and key Administration officials attend the conference, provide comments as part of plenary sessions and panels, and join participants at receptions and special events.
At the National CACFP Leadership Conference, leaders from the CACFP community will come together to discover best practices, shape change, meet with USDA officials, and focus on opportunities for cutting red-tape, building a thriving CACFP program and making the most of the new nutrition and wellness requirements. The National CACFP Leadership Conference is a track within the National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference.
