Creating a Hunger-Free Communities Statewide Summit (Sept 17-18, 2015 - Bismarck ND)

Could it be done? Eliminating hunger in a state? No other state is closer to this goal than North Dakota. Although our state claims one of the lowest rates of hunger and food insecurity in the nation, still 7.8 percent, or about 56,430 people in our state don’t have enough, at times,  food for a healthy, active life for all family members and don’t have reliable access to nutritious and affordable  food.

This September, the Creating a Hunger Free North Dakota Coalition will bring together people working to make a hunger-free state. The Creating Hunger-Free Communities Summit will be held September 17-18, 2015 at the Event Center in central Bismarck.

Speakers from national organizations including Feeding America and the AARP Foundation, regional organizations including the Minneapolis Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank and School Meals that Rock and North Dakota’s own food and hunger experts will share ideas and experiences with those who attend. Music and visual displays will also be part of the conference experience. To take advantage of even more to do and see while in Bismarck, plan to stay on for the Downtowners’ Street Fair taking place September 18-19.

Save the dates of September 17-18, 2015 now…and stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

Do you share the vision of a hunger-free North Dakota? Join us at the Creating Hunger-Free Communities Summit in Bismarck and return home with plans for what you can do to end hunger in your community!
