This year’s Hunger Action Conference 2016 focused on the root causes of hunger and addressing poverty. The keynote speaker Smita Narula, a human rights advocate, attorney, spoke about the need to defend sustainable access to nutritious food as a fundamental human right.

Workshops covered everything from how to leverage funding and policy to help fight hunger to effective advocacy skill building to ways to make food shelves more user friendly. There were a number of workshops on the ties between health, medicine, and access to food.
