“I’ve been attending the National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference for over 10 years now and each year the content has been relevant to the policy work I am currently doing and informs the work I will begin. I leave inspired and with a pocket full of new tools, new allies and renewed inspiration for the hard work that waits for me back at home.”
