For 31 years, the National Food Policy Conference has been a Washington institution and a unique collaboration between consumer advocates, government and the food industry.  It is a key national gathering for those interested in agriculture, food and nutrition policy.  The conference is coordinated by the Consumer Federation of America, in cooperation with the Grocery Manufacturers Association. 

This year’s conference will focus on one key issue: food prices. Rising food prices have become a critical concern over the past months both domestically and internationally. This year’s conference will explore the implications of rising food prices and offer possible solutions. Speakers and panelists will explore the connections between rising food prices and an array of issues including nutrition, energy, hunger, sustainability and international trade.

             The conference will be held at the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel, 999 - 9th Street, NW, 202-898-9000.  There is valet parking available and the closest Metro stop is Gallery Place/Chinatown which is accessible via the yellow, green and red lines.
