IMPAQ is proud to attend the 2016 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference from February 28-29, 2016 in Washington, DC. This is a great opportunity to network with subject matter experts in the policy areas of the federal Child Nutrition Programs, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Senior Hunger, Food as Medicine, and food systems.
The National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference, co-sponsored by the Food Research and Action Center and Feeding America, draws anti-hunger and anti-poverty advocates; federal, state, and local government officials; child advocates; representatives of food banks and food rescue organizations; sponsoring organizations and nutrition and anti-obesity groups, for three days of training, networking, and Capitol Hill advocacy.
Participants share information and learn how to strengthen the quality and reach of federal nutrition programs, learn best outreach and program practices from other states and localities, fill in the gaps in food service for millions of low-income children, and identify creative ideas for new and innovative approaches to ending hunger. Members of Congress, Hill staff and key Administration officials attend the conference, provide comments as part of plenary sessions and panels, and join participants at receptions and special events.
