The 2022 Hunger and Health Summit: Reimagined Resiliency, was held on April 24-26th, 2022 at the Chula Vista Resort in the Wisconsin Dells.
These past two years have presented our neighbors and communities with enormous challenges. Yet, we have been resourceful and innovative in working to end hunger, improve health, and strengthen our communities. As we move forward, faced with a new norm, we will remain responsive and resilient as we work toward a healthy and hunger-free Wisconsin. We were thrilled to bring together stakeholders - hunger fighters, nutrition advocates, service providers, health promoters, food and farming advocates, community builders, legislators, producers, and others - to share best practice, develop collaborative initiatives, and support one another as we consider our ending hunger and health improving role in this season of reimagined resiliency.
