Join the Vermont Foodbank for our annual Hunger Action Conference at the Killington Grand Resort Hotel in Killington, Vermont.


This day-long conference is a valuable opportunity for charitable food providers and other non-profits, community and business leaders, volunteers, advocates, elected officials and concerned citizens to network, share their knowledge and experience, and learn from experts on the causes and effects of hunger as we work together to address the challenges we face in our communities. 


This year’s conference will explore the relationship between hunger, health and nutrition and offer tangible takeaways for addressing the dietary needs and well-being of our neighbors.
