Houston Mayor Annise Parker will welcome more than 60 food banking leaders from more than 30 countries at "The World's Fare," an international networking reception scheduled for Tuesday, March 5, 6 p.m., at the Houston Food Bank, 535 Portwall Street 77029. The food bank delegates are in Houston to take part in The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) Food Bank Leadership Institute (FBLI), March 4-8 at the Houston Food Bank.
The Mayor's Office of International Communities and GFN are co-hosting this event as part of the FBLI. The purpose of the gathering is to provide Houston's international business and philanthropic communities the opportunity to meet food banking leaders from their home countries and explore how they can work together to address the challenge of world hunger.
The Global FoodBanking Network is the only nonprofit organization committed to creating, supplying and strengthening food banks and food bank networks throughout the world. More than 580 million people suffer from hunger worldwide. FBLI is the only global forum for education, best practice sharing and training for those who work to make the world a better place through food banking.
