Request for Proposals:

The Vermont Foodbank is the largest hunger relief organization in the state and its mission is to gather and share quality food and nurture partnerships so that no one in Vermont will go hungry.  

The passion that fuels the Vermont Foodbank’s mission comes from the diverse perspectives and skills of its 215 network partners from across Vermont. For the past ten years, the Foodbank’s annual Hunger Action Conference (HAC) has brought together this network, in addition to other non-profits, state of Vermont partners and the general public, to creatively address the problem of hunger in our state.

This year’s conference theme is diversity and inclusion; our keynote speaker is Dr. Jude Smith Rachele from Abundant Sun: www.abundantsun.com.  The Vermont Foodbank is seeking workshop proposals for the conference; workshop topics can connect with the theme and/or other related themes of hunger and poverty. 

The Hunger Action Conference is a full-day educational event that provides 300 plus attendees from the mission-driven and charitable food sectors with training regarding poverty and hunger, food systems, health, best practices and more, to help them positively impact those most in need in their communities. The event includes a speaking program, several choices of workshops, a sit down lunch, and a networking marketplace.  Workshops are expected to last 75-90 minutes including Q&A or discussion time. 

Proposal Deadline: Tuesday, January 23, 2018 by 4:00 p.m.

Submissions:  Proposal submission must include all of the information requested.  Proposals need to be submitted by 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 23, 2018.  Proposals can be completed online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HACRFP2018.  Please contact Jen Messier at jmessier@vtfoodbank.org if you have any questions.
