March 21-22, 2019 | Louisville, KY

On March 21-22, No Kid Hungry hosted its first-ever Rural Child Summit in Louisville, Kentucky. The convening brought together more than 220 leaders from 41 states, including food banks, state agencies, public policy organizations and nonprofits, as well as economists, professors, a best-selling author, the Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture and a senior advisor from the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. Over the course of two days, the group focused on the latest research, policy options, and emerging innovations designed to uncover promising practices in the fight against rural child hunger.


The Summit was jam-packed with information around poverty, hunger and other interconnected challenges facing rural America. You can access all Summit presentations by clicking on the session titles in this hyperlinked program.
