2019 Come to the Table Conference

March 12 - March 13

We invite faith leaders and laypeople, hunger relief advocates, farmers, farm workers, community organizers, community gardeners, food council members, extension agents and others to join us next March to examine the root causes of hunger and collaborate to build a more just food system. At the 2019 Come to the Table Conference, we hope to energize attendees to go back to their communities with the knowledge to challenge the systemic nature of hunger and the skills and connections to grow structures that are based in justice. The 2019 Conference will:

  • Share resources, tools & knowledge to support attendees in being effective community organizers for a more just food system
  • Provide space for the knowledge and wisdom in the room to be shared and for us all to learn together
  • Provide space for people to connect with each other and build relationships that will sustain and support their work
