Anti-Hunger Conference

Ronald Hargrave, our Outreach Case Manager, headed to Washington to participate in the 2014 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference. Ronald submitted a scholarship application in December and was selected to attend!

This conference is significant in that it brings together anti-hunger and anti-poverty advocates, government officials from the federal, state and local levels, child advocates, food bank and food rescue organization reps, and nutrition and anti-obesity groups for 3 days of training, networking and advocacy on Capitol Hill.

All participants, including Ron, had the opportunity to network, share information and learn methods to strengthen the quality and (hopefully) quantity of federally funded nutrition programs, and learn best outreach and program practices. Participants were scheduled to work on identifying creative and innovative approaches for ending hunger in America. Members of Congress and Administration officials also attended the conference, and Ron and others had a chance to meet with some of these officials to advocate for continued and expanded nutrition programs.
