Student Scholarships Available for ‘Fighting Hunger’ Conference

Student scholarships are available to attend the seventh annual Fighting Hunger in Maryland Conference, which will be held Oct. 24, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Lowe House Office Building in Annapolis.

Presented by the Maryland Food Access and Nutrition Network (MFANN), the conference brings together leaders from state and local agencies, nonprofits, schools, and advocacy organizations who will meet to inform, engage, and inspire action to promote equity in food access and nutrition in Maryland.

This year’s conference theme, “Food For Thought,” will provide a deeper look at the causes of hunger and ways to improve strategic outreach, advocacy, and partnerships to address hunger and nutrition in Maryland.

Conference attendees will gain a tool kit of ideas and best practices to make the state’s communities healthy and hunger-free.

Information about the conference and a link to apply for the scholarship can be found here.
