Partner Agency Conference 2013 - An Opportunity to Learn and Share : The Single Serving

Partner Agency Conference 2013 - An Opportunity to Learn and Share

by Montgomery Area Food Bank on 11/01/13

As partners with the MAFB, our agencies find themselves facing major challenges on a daily basis. As the ones who regularly come in contact with the hungry, they are in the perfect position to offer more than just food. They also provide HOPE. After all, that’s what our logo says – Feeding Hope Across Alabama.

Our Agency Conference this year focused on providing ways for our agencies to provide that HOPE. Along with the initial relief from hunger, we see so many agencies going the extra mile by helping people to stand on their own. This conference provided solid solutions for them to use in their ministry.

Agency Conference (131)
Classes included a wide variety of subjects because our agencies care for people from a wide variety of ages, living conditions and locations. We addressed how to assist our precious seniors, our working families that just cannot make ends meet, and the unique needs of those in rural areas. There were classes on how to start and maintain a community garden, a class on basic nutrition, as well as the fundamentals of getting a job. Agencies learned that “more is not always better”, and that the key to helping clients return to independence often hinges on the choices each client makes. By helping them make better choices, the agencies are giving people a better shot at leaving poverty behind.

It was a great conference. Meeting people, joining forces, sharing information and experiences gives us all the chance to take our agencies, and MAFB, up to the next level.
