INTRODUCTION

Each year, the Washington Food Coalition hosts its annual conference, an event that brings together folks fighting hunger from all over Washington State. Attendees will have the opportunity to develop new relationships and projects through collaboration, 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 will feature a mix of keynote, breakout and networking sessions. A conference guide detailing these opportunities will be distributed in August 2015. The event provides an experience that is both informative and fun! Come join us as we share ideas, learn together, and find practical solutions to common problems:

Early Bird Registration ends September 15th, 2015

Final Registration Deadline: September 22, 2015 after September 22nd, registration will be taken on-site at the event.
