The 2020 Sunshine Summit to End Hunger, presented by the Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger in partnership with Bread for the World and Florida Impact, will be hosted virtually for the first time ever, according to a news release.
The 10th annual event is slated to take place Oct. 29 and Oct. 30 from 9 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., Eastern Standard Time (EST), each day, and will act as a forum for participants to learn, share and network while exploring the best practices in solving hunger.
This year’s theme is “Global Effects of COVID-19 on Food Systems and Local Effects on Emergency Feeding Efforts.”
Sessions will be locally, nationally and internationally focused on the experiences of families struggling with food insecurity, and different response programs and techniques.
The keynote speakers will be Feeding India’s founder Ankit Kawatra and co-founder Srishti Jain, who will provide an international perspective on how Feeding India responded to feed their communities during COVID-19.
“We’re excited to be working with local leaders and those from across the globe to promote not only an end to hunger, but to food insecurity and food insufficiency, for a healthy lifestyle,” Caitlyn Peacock, executive director of Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger, said in the release.
“The network works to build a hunger-free community with access to nutritious food for all,” Peacock commented.
Registration for the summit is free.
