Anti-Hunger Boot Camp 101: an entry-level course in federal nutrition program advocacy for those new to the community

Saturday, February 29, 2020, 2:00-5:30 PM (it includes a networking break — with snacks!)
Omni Shoreham Hotel, Washington, DC (Anti-Hunger Policy Conference site)

Learn from seasoned pros how the federal nutrition programs operate and how you can fully engage in advocacy to strengthen and protect them. This pre-conference session will provide new or early career advocates and first-time conference attendees with the following take-aways and benefits:

  1. a brief overview of federal nutrition programs: SNAP, early childhood (WIC and CACFP), school-based (breakfast and lunch), out-of-school time (afterschool snacks and meals, and summer meals), older adult nutrition programs, and commodity assistance (TEFAP and CSFP);
  2. the basics of the legislative process; and
  3. tools of the trade for effective anti-hunger advocacy.

An “open mic” segment will provide ample time for all your questions.

Note: This 101 session will be very similar to the one offered at the 2019 conference and is back by popular demand.

“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.”
Jessica Bartholow, Policy Advocate, Western Center on Law and Poverty (CA)
