Location: Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center, Tacoma, Washington (30 minutes south of Seattle)
Hosted by: Northwest Harvest and the CTHG National Network
The goal of the 2017 CTHG conference is to move hunger relief organizations toward strategies that promote social justice and address the root causes of hunger, using the lens of racial and economic equity.
At the first CTHG conference in 2013, 300 people from 170 organizations representing 33 states plus Washington, DC gathered together in Tucson, Arizona. For the 2017 conference, we expect to bring together more than 500 attendees representing emergency food providers, farms, and nonprofit organizations focused on health, education, and food justice. The conference will be a vibrant, diverse, and inspiring event where attendees have ample time to learn new skills, discuss innovative programs, and network with their peers.
