Over the MLK weekend in January, when the nation focuses on social justice, community cafe operators and those interested in starting a cafe meet in a different city each year to discuss how they can more effectively address food insecurity, which affects approximately 795 million people globally and 14% of American households.  

Previous One World Everybody Eats summits have been held in Austin, Tampa, Denver, Philadelphia, New Orleans, and New Brunswick, NJ, and have included keynote speakers from Feeding America, Witnesses to Hunger, LA Kitchen, Hunger Free America, the JBJ Soul Foundation, and Panera Cares, the nonprofit foundation started by Panera Bread. 

The summit also includes nonprofit board and fund raising training and panel discussions, and there is ample opportunity for attendees to network and learn from one another.
