Rural Child Hunger Summit banner



Columbus, OH | March 31 - April 1, 2020


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:

  1. Explore the disparities driving child hunger in rural communities

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

  3. Celebrate innovations that are user-centered and evidence-informed

  4. Foster connections between communities of research and practice

Attendees of the second Rural Child Hunger Summit will have numerous opportunities for networking and peer learning. Our 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.
