Closing the Hunger Gap Report

In September 2013, the Community Food Bank of Arizona hosted Closing the Hunger Gap, a conference for progressive emergency food providers across the country who are interested in moving beyond charitable distribution. Providers attended workshops, networked, and identified seven areas of interest and exploration through a facilitated process: Food Banks as Public Health Institutions, Food Banks in Symbiotic Relationship with Local Food Producers, Capacity Building and Convening, Creating and Sustaining a Culture of Innovation and Learning, Becoming Community Economic Builders, Food Banks as Community Organizers and Social Justice Advocates, and Food Banks as Public Policy Leaders.
The conference report is now available on the website, and marks the start of a coordinated, transparent effort to share ideas and advance food banking into a more justice oriented approach.
