6/1: 2015 AAFB Conference a Success

On May 29, 2015 over 200 food bankers, advocates and faith leaders convened at St. Patrick Catholic Community in Scottsdale, Arizona for Fighting Hunger Together: The 2015 Arizona Food Bank Conference.  This year offered the first two-track workshop schedule, offering a variety of topics in either food banking operations or advocacy and community outreach.  Attendees had a unique opportunity during the "Ask a Food Bank CEO" panel to pose questions in real time to food bank CEO's Beverly Damore, of St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance; Ginny Hildebrand, of United Food Bank; and Michael McDonald, of Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.  Conference materials are available at: http://www.azfoodbanks.org/index.php/conference.
