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 love attending the National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference because it is the one conference that pays me back all year long!  I acquire a wealth of knowledge and information from the presenters and attendees that I use for the entire year!  I leave every year already excited for the next year!”
Sonja Carvalho, Administrative Manager, Catholic Charities Maine CACFP
