Save the Date - 2012 Fighting Hunger in Maryland Conference
October 16, 2012
8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
University of Maryland Medical Center
621 W. Lombard Street, Baltimore
As the only statewide anti-hunger conference, Fighting Hunger in Maryland is an important forum that will bring together leaders from state and local agencies, nonprofits, schools and other entities invested in reducing hunger and poverty in Maryland. Through expert panel presentations, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities, Fighting Hunger in Maryland will frame challenges and develop solutions to hunger in Maryland. Topics include: SNAP and child nutrition policy; changing paradigms in food distribution; local food, local hunger; food security and nutrition strategies for seniors; and outreach strategy round-robins.
The conference also will serve as the host of the Baltimore opening of the Witnesses to Hunger photography exhibit. Through its partnership with mothers and caregivers of young children, Witnesses to Hunger is an advocacy project that powerfully depicts the face of hunger and the challenges of poverty. Through digital photography and storytelling, the witnesses spark dialogue, engage and inform policymakers, and initiate change. The conference will also include a panel discussion featuring witnesses from Baltimore, providing an unparalleled opportunity to merge the day’s practical training workshops with personal testimony. We hope you will join us!
