Extension is partner in Hunger Summit Oct. 12

Iowa Hunger Summit

Iowa State University Extension is proud to be partnering in a wonderful opportunity to showcase Iowa’s leadership in the fight against hunger – both at home and abroad. The Fourth Annual Iowa Hunger Summit, Oct. 12 in Des Moines, is a unique event – free and open to the public – for all Iowans interested or involved in fighting hunger and improving nutrition. The day-long program will feature both educational and interactive sessions on a variety of hunger-related issues, featuring organizations including ISU Extension and several of its partners.

In advance of the event, all Iowans are encouraged to share their stories about what their communities and organizations are doing to fight hunger at www.iowahungersummit.org. Extension staff involved in projects to overcome food insecurity will be submitting information about the impact of these efforts over the past year.

Please encourage your local partners, community leaders and any other interested colleagues and contacts to likewise send in information about their anti-hunger efforts at www.iowahungersummit.org.

Individuals or community groups interested in attending the event should register now at www.iowahungersummit.org. The event is free and open to all, but registration is required.
