Every two years, CAFB holds a skills-building conference for its membership and the anti-hunger community. CAFB’s conference offers attendees the unique opportunity to:
- Network with food bankers and important partners;
- Build skills for emergency food delivery, advocacy, and client service;
- Explore the connections between hunger, poverty, and health; and
- Develop innovative solutions for addressing hunger and nutrition.
Legislative Day is on May 3.
