Register Now for the Network Summit

May 24, 2017

The Network Summit is an event held every other year with the purpose of bringing together the Foodbank’s hunger relief network for a day of sharing, learning, and networking. This year, the Network Summit will be held on Friday, August 11th at Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) in Rootstown, Ohio. The day will focus on Goal 3 of the Foodbank’s strategic plan, Foodbank 2020, which focuses on building a strong, sustainable, collaborative network within the communities served in order to optimize our collective work.
More details and registration information can be found here. All emergency feeding programs (food pantries, hot meal sites, and shelters) must send at least one individual to an educational opportunity at the Foodbank each year in order to maintain grant eligibility. This will also meet one of the criteria at the Engaged Partner Level in the new Network Partner Program.
