Food Bank Leadership Institute

The 2017 H-E-B/GFN
Food Bank Leadership Institute
March 2017
Houston, TX, U.S.A.

The H-E-B/GFN Food Bank Leadership Institute (FBLI), GFN’s flagship annual event, is a global forum for education, technical training, and best practice sharing for those involved in food banking. FBLI brings together social entrepreneurs from every corner of the world who are dedicated to alleviating hunger and reducing food waste through food banking.

FBLI is vital to GFN’s mission of alleviating world hunger. Bringing food bank leaders together at FBLI is an effective and efficient way for GFN to support numerous individual food banks at the same time, as well as promote the global food banking movement.

Since 2007, the Institute has hosted nearly 400 individuals from 55 countries.
