Meet Your 2019 CAFB Conference Planning Committee

July 27, 2018

Every two years California Association of Food Banks holds a skills-building conference for its membership and the anti-hunger community. The event features electrifying keynote speakers like last year’s Sheryl Sandberg, forward-thinking workshops on addressing hunger in California, and the rare opportunity for food bankers and anti-hunger fighters to convene on the west coast. It takes thoughtful planning and leadership to create a successful event. Every year Director of Member Services, Terry Garner, forms a planning committee of members from different areas of food banking to help guide the program.

CAFB is pleased to share the 2019 CAFB Conference Committee with you: 

Bruce Rankin

Carly Finkle

Erick Lovdahl
