Vermont Foodbank – Hunger Action Conference

Killington Grand Resort, Killington, VT
The passion that fuels the Vermont Foodbank’s mission comes from the diverse perspectives and skills of its 215 network partners from across Vermont. For the past eleven years, the Foodbank’s annual Hunger Action Conference (HAC) has brought together this network, in addition to other non-profits, state of Vermont partners and the general public, to creatively address the problem of hunger in our state. The Hunger Action Conference is a full-day educational event that provides 300+ attendees from the mission-driven and charitable food sectors with training regarding poverty and hunger, food systems, health, best practices and more, to help them positively impact those most in need in their communities. The event includes a speaking program, several choices of workshops, a sit down lunch, and a networking marketplace.
This year’s conference theme is “Healing the Past for a Healthy Future”. Our keynote speaker is Dr. Ken Epstein. Dr. Epstein provides facilitation, coaching and consultation to organizations and entities implementing culture change using a trauma informed and equity lens. At this year’s conference, we will explore what it takes to become a network of healing organizations. Traumatic experiences from people’s pasts can have a long term impact on their lives. We will learn about trauma informed systems, and practices to promote health and wellness.
