TACOMA: Closing the Hunger Gap

CLOSING THE HUNGER GAP: From Charity to Solidarity

September 12 and 13, 2017 (Pre-Conference September 11)

Greater Tacoma Convention Center

Tacoma, Washington

Presented by CTHG (Closing The Hunger Gap)


According to Feeding America, African-American households are twice as likely than white households to be food insecure. And yet, even though hunger affects people of color disproportionately, the nonprofit sector reflects the same power systems that reinforce that inequality: only 18% of nonprofits are led by people of color.

How does the sector get more leaders of color at the table?

How can nonprofits engage our communities effectively?

Join us at the 2017 Closing the Hunger Gap conference to learn practical solutions and methods for supporting racial and economic equity.


The goal of the conference is to move hunger relief organizations toward strategies that promote social justice and address the root causes of hunger, using the lens of racial and economic equity. 

The two-day conference will feature leading speakers, such as Malik Yakini and Beatriz Beckford, and will focus on dismantling racial and economic disparities in our food system. On Monday, September 11th, the pre-conference will feature several hands-on tours visiting innovative programs, meeting program participants, and enjoying delicious food from right here in Washington State.



$340-$380 - Early Bird registration ends August 1! 





CTHG is a network of food banks, anti-hunger advocates, and food justice activists from across North America working to engage food banks and their constituents in expanding their efforts beyond food handouts, toward community-based empowerment initiatives that effectively network with broader food security work. The network formed in 2012 and is guided by a Leadership Team composed of representatives from food banks and partner organizations across the US.
