My favorite meeting every year, the Consumer Federation of America hosts the National Food Policy Conference April 6-7 at the Capitol Hilton here in D.C.
Speakers range from Jerry Hagstrom (the Hagstrom Report) to Alex Ashbrook (Food Research and Action Center) and Angie Tagtow (CNPP). Topics cover hunger and food insecurity, food communications, nutrition policy and more.
If you're planning to attend, come to my panel discussion on Wednesday at 3:45! We'll be chatting about all things food insecurity-related, and I'll be sharing new AARP Foundation data on the 50+ consumer and how individuals make decisions while shopping in a supermarket.
