Food ACCESS, hosted by CAFB, brings together individuals from around the state and across the country to address the hunger epidemic.

Join us in October and together we will explore the underlying causes of hunger, how to increase access to food, and what steps can be taken toward creating a hunger-free California. 

Anyone interested in joining the conversation and movement to end hunger — food bank staff, anti-hunger allies, philanthropists, state and local government staff — is welcome.

It’s a two-day event with plenaries, workshops, networking sessions, a reception, and more!

The 2022 Food ACCESS Conference will be located at the SAFE Credit Union Convention Center, 1400 J St, Sacramento, CA 95814 in Ballroom B Area on the Second Level.

The Conference begins at 12:00 noon on Monday, October 3, 2022 and ends at 3:00 PM on Tuesday, October 4, 2022.

The 2022 Food ACCESS conference will help to push forward the conversation about strategies to address hunger and its root causes, share learnings and challenges, and connect with one another in person for the first time in a long time.

About California Association of Food Banks
The California Association of Food Banks (CAFB) leads the collective effort to end hunger in California. CAFB works alongside its 41 member food banks and on behalf of hungry Californians to ensure that each and every Californian has the food they need to live a healthy and hunger-free life. We do this by working to expand access to food resources and change the systems that create hunger in the first place, and by supplying food banks with the tools and resources they need to do what they do best: feed our communities.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, CAFB helped keep food banks stocked with critical food supply, delivering hundreds of millions of pounds of food to food banks throughout the state. As a leading organization of the School Meals for All coalition and co-sponsor of the bill, we secured first-of-its-kind legislation that will ensure every California kid has access to free breakfast and lunch at school. Partnering with 50+ community organizations, we enroll and keep enrolled thousands of Californians in CalFresh nutrition benefits. For more information about what we do, please visit
