This call for proposals is divided into three different opportunities for you to engage summit attendees. The application will ask you to select one of the following as the primary objective for the proposed workshop:

Track 1:  Share an innovative practice at your organization.

Track 2:  Explore the possibility of launching a new program or practice and receive feedback.

Track 3:  Bring attention to emerging issues that could affect our efforts.

Most workshops will accommodate up to 50 people.  Workshops are 60 minutes long, including a Q&A session.  A/V is available upon request.  Speakers will be offered complimentary registration.

You are invited to submit a workshop proposal for the 2017 Hunger Free Communities Summit. This year, the Alliance to End Hunger is partnering with the Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger and the event will be held in Tampa, Florida on November 6 & 7. The event is co-branded as the 2017 National Sunshine Summit to End Hunger (www.summittoendhunger.com). This request for workshop proposals is for two of the workshop tracks offered at the summit. Most workshops will accommodate about 50 people, theatre-style. Workshops are 75 minutes long. A/V is available upon request. Speakers will be offered complimentary registration.

Workshop proposals are being accepted for the following workshop tracks:

  1. Hunger Free Communities Best Practices: This track presents conference attendees an opportunity to learn effective and innovative practices for increasing food security through collaboration.

Presenters are encouraged to share toolkits and other resources to help participants apply the lessons to their localities.
