The 2018 Kellogg Fellows Leadership Alliance (KFLA) Global Summit on Food Security and Thriving Communities will gather community leaders, problem solvers, and provocative speakers in Atlanta, Georgia from November 29th–December 2nd to address hunger and malnutrition in a new lens.
Using food to glance into society, the Summit aims to address the social problems that both cause and result from hunger and malnutrition. Tackling oppression and discrimination in communities, food systems, health, policy, and more, the Summit will dissect the social inequality that limits human fulfillment in a world of plenty.
Plenaries will allow inspiring speakers to examine the root causes of social problems, and strategy sessions will encourage small groups to explore solutions in their own communities, guided by experts. Throughout the weekend, topics such as My Role in the Food System, Policy & Politics Around Food, and Leadership for Narrative Change will empower and activate attendees to return to their communities, prepared to make a difference.
Over 200 Kellogg Fellows will attend the Summit to connect, reflect, and jumpstart solutions with their community networks. Through the Kellogg Fellows Leadership Alliance, 1,700 Kellogg Fellows participate in events like the Summit and in leadership development programs run by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
Speakers will include Ricardo Salvador, Director and Senior Scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists; Holly Freishtat, Baltimore City Food Policy Director; Michelle Nunn, President and CEO of CARE USA; and His Majesty King Letsie III of Lesotho, the FAO Special Ambassador for Nutrition. Danielle Nierenberg, President of Food Tank, will also speak at the Summit.
