"Intent reveals desire, action reveals commitment"
The Summit on Hunger and Food Insecurity is a bi-annual summit that gathers the state's faith leaders, charitable emergency food providers, state and local government, health providers, advocacy groups, business and industry and community members gathered together to learn about hunger and food insecurity. Participants of the Hunger Summit get the opportunity to work in different tracks (participants are encouraged to stay within their one track) and learn about the related efforts that are going on throughout the state and how we can collectively improve upon them. Hunger Summit tracks can change but common tracks include:
Local Food Systems
Multicultural Food Security
Mining Census Data
At the end of this one day event, each track will together craft next steps and action items that will be reviewed and reported on during the following Summit on Hunger and Food Insecurity. Additionally, the Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force writes a report detailing previous actions that have been taken around the state and what we will do to alleviate hunger in Idaho in the future.
