“Food is one of the most powerful ways that we connect with each other, but millions of people don’t have that option. At the UFWH Summit, you'll discover so many ways that you can have a positive impact on those in need. After attending last year, I left feeling empowered and inspired. I learned that some of the greatest hunger initiatives started on college campuses. We have the opportunity and resources to contribute to something much bigger than ourselves. If you have any interest in making a difference and leading change, join the movement. Let’s end hunger.” ~ Liana Dixon, MPH Candidate, Department of Population Health Policy and Management at the University of Kentucky (attended 2018 UFWH Summit)

“Attending the UFWH Summit was a transformative experience that opened my eyes to the reality of unspoken truths that I didn’t know existed. The Summit not only broadened my knowledge and understanding of hunger, malnutrition and poverty, but also inspired me to continue fighting hunger and making a positive impact in my community.” ~ Kendra Oo, Director of Community Outreach, Department of Dietetics and Human Nutrition at the University of Kentucky (attended 2016, 2017 and 2019 UFWH Summits)
