Annual Agency Conference Gathers Hunger Fighters from Throughout Southeast Texas

On September 29, the Food Bank concluded Hunger Action Month by convening its annual Agency Conference bringing together about 250 people, most of whom were volunteers serving at our partner hunger fighting agencies around the region.

The gathering featured several speakers focused on topics that can help agencies grow their programs and service capacity.  Dr. Alan Coleman offered a general session on the emerging Healthy Southeast Texas initiative he is helping spearhead.

The conference also featured the presentation of the First Annual Carol Inzer Memorial Award, honoring the Food Bank’s deceased longtime Agency Relations Specialist who had a passion for agency development and growth.  Congratulations to the Orangefield/Bridge City Ministerial Alliance for demonstrating their commitment to expanding their hunger fighting efforts and winning  a commemorative plaque and a $2,000 grant to advance their operations!
