No Kid Hungry's Rural Child Hunger Summit is going virtual! We will be hosting this event online on March 31st from 10:30am - 3:15 pm EDT. Please save the date on your calendar. The Virtual Rural Child Hunger Summit will be a series of webinars hosted on Zoom. We recommend downloading the Zoom app to your phone or desktop for ease of viewing. No registration is required for attending the event. 

Make plans to take part in this national event, which will bring together a wide range of stakeholders who are leading change in our collective efforts to reduce child hunger in rural communities. Objectives for the Summit are four-fold:

  • Explore the disparities driving child hunger in rural communities

  • Identify promising practices and policy levers that amplify the impact of existing nutrition assistance programs or reduce the incidence of rural child hunger

  • Celebrate innovations that are user-centered and evidence-informed

  • Foster connections between communities of research and practice

Attendees of the second Rural Child Hunger Summit will have increased opportunities for networking and peer learning. The ultimate goal for this year’s Summit is to cultivate a thriving community of researchers, policymakers, and practitioners who are working together to end child hunger in the rural communities they live in or serve.
