Annual Conference
Each year, AAFB hosts an annual conference for our member food banks, their agency partners and various hunger relief organizations throughout Arizona. Our goal is to provide a forum for networking, education and sharing of best practices to help us all work together towards our common goal. With a range of expert speakers we cover topics such as key advocacy issues, food safety best practices, and hunger impacts throughout Arizona. To learn more about our next conference and access resources from previous conferences, please visit our Annual Conference webpage
