Event Description

HELP US PUT HUNGER ON THE AGENDA

About 5% – or over a million – Australians regularly can’t put adequate food on the table to feed their families. The numbers are even higher in some areas and amongst particular populations. This hidden hunger may not be visible, but can have serious short and long term effects on health, education, employment and productivity (National Health Survey 2004-5). We’ll be tackling this challenge at our inaugural conference on food security, Putting Food on The Table.

Held on 13 & 14 October 2014 in Sydney, this two day event will bring together policy makers, academics, community development workers, and health promoters, exploring solutions at a range of levels:
