Would you like to connect/network with other organizations doing similar work in your region? Then join us at one of the Regional Network Meetings for Vermont Foodbank Network Partners.

Hunger Action Conference
The annual Hunger Action Conference, held in May, is an opportunity for network partners, activists, legislators and concerned citizens to gather, network, take advantage of professional development opportunities, and to discuss the status of hunger in Vermont. Updates are made to the Hunger Action Conference webpage throughout the year, including new ways to connect and keep the conversation going!
Each day the Vermont Foodbank works to end hunger by distributing millions of pounds of food to Vermonters in need. We also address the issues of hunger and poverty by advocating with and for those experiencing hunger in Vermont. There are events throughout the year that help us raise awareness about hunger in Vermont, including Hunger Awareness Day in February, the Hunger Action Conference in May, and Hunger Action Month in September.
