The 2023 Iowa Hunger Summit will be hosted on September 7, 2023. This year's summit will revisit the theme Paths to Zero to continue charting a course to overcoming hunger in the state of Iowa and beyond.
We encourage Iowa- and nationally-based organizations focused on hunger, poverty, health, or related issues to get involved at the Iowa Hunger Summit by participating in the event, hosting a breakout session, or reserving exhibit space.
Breakout sessions at the Iowa Hunger Summit are opportunities for participants to engage in in-depth conversations about local, regional, statewide, and national food security challenges and solutions. Hosts prepare a 45-minute session that offers practical insight and tools for attendees to further involve themselves in combating food insecurity in Iowa and around the world.
Applications are more likely to be accepted if 1) more than one organization is involved in leading/speaking, 2) the session provides opportunities for audience engagement, and 3) the session connects to the Iowa Hunger Summit theme of Paths to Zero. Applications are due by July 15, 2023.
Organizations interested in hosting a breakout session can learn more and apply using our sign-up form.
The 2023 Iowa Hunger Summit will be hosted in person at the World Food Prize Hall of Laureates in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. The Hall of Laureates provides ample space for networking and spreading the word about your organization's goals and vision.
