Reluctant board? Judgmental volunteers? Trouble sourcing food? Wondering what type of space you need? Can’t dispel the sense of competition for food? Can’t get people interested in the bigger picture? There are lots of food bank staff working to nudge their organizations toward a healthier, more progressive path, but there can be many obstacles encountered en route to the “better food bank.” We’ll be asking those with thorny food bank problems to bring them forward for a collective brainstorming session. Those who’ve already vanquished their obstacles are also asked to come and contribute their wisdom.
