The 2016 Summit on Idaho Hunger and Food Security is a bi-annual summit that gathers the state's faith leaders, charitable emergency food providers, state and local government, health providers, advocacy groups, business and industry and community members together to learn about hunger and food insecurity. Participants of the Hunger Summit get the opportunity to work in one track and learn about the related efforts that are going on throughout the state and how we can collectively improve upon them. This year's tracks include:
At the end of this one day event, each track will craft next steps and action items that will be shared with the larger Summit. Those same next steps and action items will be reviewed and reported on during the following Summit on Idaho Hunger and Food Security. Additionally, the Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force writes a final report detailing the action items addressed within each track and what we will do to alleviate hunger in Idaho in the future.
