The next semester of Agency Achievement Academy (A3) class has officially kicked off! A3 provides free training for community nonprofits designed to help them take their feeding programs or organizations to the next level, where ever that next step may be. Classes lined up for this semester include a variety of workshops and formats. Whether someone is looking to expand a program, develop skills, or add new services, A3 has something excellent to offer.
The Capital Area Food Bank’s premier training for emergency feeding programs, Top Shelf, are scheduled for February and May. Top Shelf provides a solid foundation for improving feeding programs across seven different areas of operation. The program has been supported by numerous organizations, including Rent-A-Center, which has donated brand new freezers to the food bank. Organizations can apply to receive one of these freezers upon completion of Top Shelf.
Other classes will help develop a new distribution model, conduct a cooking demonstration, advocate on behalf of clients, speak to the media, or even grow food for a pantry. Plus, one can find out how to access additional training with partner agencies and preview the Metropolitan Area Hunger Conference on April 26, 2013. A3 is turning knowledge into action – sign up for a class today!
