National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference 2015

The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) and Feeding America will hold its annual conference, the 2015 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference in Washington, DC. The conference will convene 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. The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) is the leading national nonprofit organization working to improve public policies and public-private partnerships to eradicate hunger and under nutrition in the United States. Feed America’s mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.

The conference will give participants an opportunity to share information and learn how to strengthen the quality and reach of federal nutrition programs, learn best practices in outreach and programming from other states and localities, identify the gaps in food service for millions of low-income children and strategize creative ideas for new and innovative approaches to ending hunger. Members of Congress, Hill staff and key Administration officials will be in attendance, provide comments as part of plenary sessions and panels, and join participants at receptions and special events.

The agenda includes workshops on advocacy, communications, child nutrition, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), access, nutrition, research and the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).
