Meeting the Future - WFC Conference 2014 September 10-12 at the Wenatchee Convention Center
Each year, the Washington Food Coalition hosts its annual conference, the only event that brings together everyone fighting hunger in all of Washington State. Attendees have the opportunity to develop new collaborations, share information about tools and resources, hear about new and innovative programs and services, and network with others who share in their commitment to alleviate hunger. The conference features a mix of keynote, breakout and networking sessions. We also offer a variety of exciting tours at local wineries, organic farms, and food
banks as well as many conference extras. The event provides a memorable experience that is both informative and fun!
Plan to join us as we share ideas, learn together, and find practical solutions to common problems.
