Unite with other local partners at our annual Partner Agency Conference.

Imagine Ending Hunger | 2023 Partner Agency Conference

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada’s annual conference provides a perfect opportunity to network with organizations who face the same issues you do every day.   There are not many opportunities when we can all get together and share best practices and insight about our work while we learn from each other.  This year, we’ll celebrate the impact we’ve had together as the Food Bank marks our 40th anniversary while we look ahead to the work in front of us as we Imagine Ending Hunger.  We look forward to having you join us.

Your conference registration fee covers all of your conference materials, as well as breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack.

Please note, registration will not be available at the door for this year’s conference.  All attendees must register using Eventbrite.

For the first time, Food Bank of Northern Nevada will be hosting a Rural Partner Day on September 28th, the day before the Partner Agency Conference.  We recognize that rural food distribution can differ greatly from an urban model and want to spotlight this during the Rural Partner Day. The day will consist of two parts; half of the day will be spent at the Food Bank.  We’ll spend this time touring the building, having presentations and round tables on rural-specific topics, and discussing the Rural Access Grant. The second half of the day will be used to tour two partner agencies that display different distribution models. FBNN values our Rural Partners’ work and hopes to bring a little extra to your Partner Agency Conference experience.


Located immediately across the street, Atlantis Casino Resort Spa is the nearest hotel to the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.  Several other hotel options are available in the nearby vicinity, with a range of rate options.  To help in your planning, we’ve put together a list of options with details about each.
