Education & Training

Agency Roundtables


Emergency feeding programs (food pantries, hot meal and shelter sites) will be required to attend at least one Agency Roundtable during the year in order to maintain eligibility for grant funded product.

This year, the Foodbank will host a series of Agency Roundtable sessions to facilitate communication and cooperation within our network. We are excited to bring these sessions to a community near you. The Agency Roundtable sessions will feature a variety of content, from educational workshops to community conversations and will take place throughout our eight county service area.

All agencies are welcome and encouraged to attend the Agency Roundtable sessions. For those agencies that did not send a representative to the 2013 Network Summit, attendance at an Agency Roundtable will reinstate eligibility for grant funded product.

If you are interested in attending, please register online or to Adrienne Bradley, Manager, Programs, by e-mailing or calling 330.777.2311.
