The Bread Line’s office staff is excited to attend the National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference next! Our offices will be closed from Monday, March 14th through Thursday the 17th, so that our staff is able to learn, network, and grow at this important conference bringing together anti-hunger and anti-poverty advocates from all across the country. For donation inquiries or questions, please leave us a message at or (907) 452-1974.

More about the conference, from their website:

“The National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference, co-sponsored by the Food Research & Action Center and Feeding America, and in cooperation with the National CACFP Forum, draws anti-hunger and anti-poverty advocates; federal, state and local government officials; child advocates; representatives of food banks and food rescue organizations; sponsoring organizations and nutrition and anti-obesity groups.

Members of Congress, Hill staff, and key Administration officials attend the conference, provide comments as part of plenary sessions and panels, and join participants at receptions and special events.

The three-day event is packed with numerous networking opportunities, interactive training, content-rich sessions, and a day on Capitol Hill to meet with Members of Congress and their key staffers. Participants share information and learn how to strengthen the quality and reach of federal nutrition programs, learn best outreach and program practices from other states and localities, fill in the gaps in food service for millions of low-income children, and identify creative ideas for new and innovative approaches to ending hunger.”
