The Food Bank of Delaware, Brae’s Brown Bags and the Food Research and Action Center are proud to present Delaware’s third annual hunger conference. This year’s regional conference is entitled Coming Together: A Community Response to Hunger to reflect that it takes all of us – children, adults, nonprofits, government entities, businesses, faith-based organizations, educational institutions and others – working together to end hunger in our communities.

Our conference is scheduled for Monday, May 4, 2015 from 7:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington, Delaware.

Featured speakers include Jared Bernstein, Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Former Chief Economist and Economic Adviser to Vice President Joseph Biden, and Dr. Sandra Hassink, President, American Academy of Pediatrics.

The Chase Center is located at 815 South Justison Street. It’s conveniently located near the Wilmington train station and accommodations can be made at the adjoining Westin Hotel. Click here to make a reservation!

This year we anticipate more than 500 adults and children to attend our full-day conference focused on innovative ways we can work together to alleviate hunger in our community and improve nutrition for our most-vulnerable populations.

Coming Together will feature both an adult track and kids’ track, with opportunities for both groups to come together to identify solutions to issues related to hunger. Planning is currently underway for the conference. A complete conference agenda will be released at a later date.

The cost to attend the full-day conference (price includes breakfast, lunch and sessions) is $40 (must register by April 17). After April 17, the price increases to $50. Click here to purchase tickets. (Sorry, but we cannot issue refunds)
