Ottawa Food Security Conference 2021: Inspiring Change

The Ottawa Food Bank is pleased to host the third annual Ottawa Food Security Conference

This year’s theme, Inspiring Change, reflects our network’s desire to make the systemic changes that build equity and improve outcomes for people in our community. The event is designed to support our network as we all strive to make these changes. The conference will provide a balance of talks, panels, and interactive sessions to inspire innovation, empowerment, and collaboration in service of systemic change. In the midst of the ongoing demands of the pandemic, we’ve also made more space for breaks and sessions to replenish and build people up.
