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:
- 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);
- the basics of the legislative process; and
- 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.
