2024 NAAHS Summit Recap

The Flagstaff Family Food Center: Food Bank and Kitchen (FFFC) is dedicated to making a positive impact by providing assistance to those experiencing food insecurity in northern Arizona. We have noticed an increase in the number of individuals and families seeking support at our Kitchen, warehouse, and neighborhood food distribution events, highlighting the growing need for our services.

In light of this, we channeled that energy and enthusiasm surrounding our efforts into something truly transformative: the Northern Arizona Anti-Hunger Summit. On Thursday, May 23rd, the summit brought together experts, leaders, and stakeholders to explore solutions and foster collaboration in addressing food insecurity in our region.

The Summit celebrated individuals and organizations making significant strides in combating hunger and food insecurity. The event featured a distinguished roster of keynote speakers, including Nephi Craig, April Bradham, and William “Bill” Bracken.
