Over 200 attendees joined us for the 2018 Hunger Action Summit, which took place on Tuesday, October 16 at Santa Clara University. Local officials and our partners shared their expertise fighting hunger across social service agencies & public health, foundations, non-profit agencies, corporations, school districts and colleges.

 Hunger Action Summit attendees collaborate and discuss challenges

Our CEO Leslie Bacho gave a wonderful keynote on the need in our communities, our focus on being more client-centric and innovative approaches to providing food.  In TED-style talks, the speakers shared strategies for feeding kids at school, addressing college hunger, working across communities & counties, doubling the ‘fresh’ in CalFresh, getting food to families in healthcare settings and applying for CalFresh on-line. Our inspiring keynote, Dr. Antwi Akom, discussed bringing the voices and qualitative data of vulnerable communities to the table when trying to solve problems.
