Fighting Hunger in Maryland is an important forum that connects leaders from state and local agencies, nonprofits, schools and advocates to inform, engage, and inspire action to promote equity in food access and nutrition in Maryland. This year’s conference theme, Face Forward, will examine the root causes of hunger and the structural barriers that produce and entrench communities in cyclical poverty as well as look to the future of policies and practices that are designed to make Maryland a more equitable and food-secure state.
Expert presentations and interactive workshops will cover topics including: Federal and State Anti-Hunger Policy and Advocacy, Innovative Program and Policy Design, Food System Approaches to Fighting Hunger, Promoting Racial Equity and Social Justice in the Food System, and many more!
