Sponsorship Opportunities & Market Place

Our partners are instrumental in supporting the fight against child hunger. With your support, the Global Child Nutrition Forum is able to connect more participants to the resources, knowledge, and relationships they need to build or expand nutritious school meal programs. Help us in ensuring every child receives the nutrition they deserve by becoming a Forum sponsor. 

We anticipate attendance of approximately 250-300 participants, comprised of government representatives engaged in the implementation of school meal programs (e.g. Education, Agriculture, Finance, Budget and Planning, Health, Industry and Trade) as well as private sector companies, international organizations, NGOs, experts, and donors involved in school feeding.

There are multiple opportunities for your organization to be involved in the Forum, including sponsorship of the event or exhibiting at the Forum Market Place.  If you have any questions, please contact: 

  • GCNF’s Will McMahan – will[at]gcnf.org 
  • WFP Centre of Excellence’s Vinicius Limongi – vinicius.limongi[at]wfp.org
"I could spend 2 or 3 months traveling to 50 different countries around the world talking to governments and WFP and different stakeholders about child nutrition, or I could come to the Forum. It is an intense couple of days where you can have those same conversations and really get a sense of what is the landscape around school feeding and child nutrition all over the world."

Market Place

The Forum Market Place will provide participating businesses and organizations an opportunity to showcase their activities, services, and products contribute to the fight against child hunger, improve child access to primary education, and increase the promotion of small-scale farmer agricultural production.

The Market Place is intended to represent a complete picture – from farm to school – of the processes food commodities go through from supplier to recipient students. Your organization will be able to exhibit your core products and services, offering an opportunity for international exposure to school feeding program implementers and stakeholders.
