For the first time, the AHPC planning team launched a request for proposals process to select a number of sessions from a diverse field of new and familiar anti-hunger voices from across the country to highlight innovative and impactful policy and advocacy strategies for addressing hunger and its inequities.
Workshops for this year’s conferences will focus on several broad themes, including reflecting on lessons learned on the critical role of federal nutrition programs during the pandemic, addressing root causes of hunger and inequities in America, and creating a movement to end hunger.
