This week, we are holding our Mobilizing the Public Conference here in Chicago where food bank personnel in communications, fundraising and volunteer management come to learn from each other.

You can't imagine the energy you get from over 400 people coming together with all one goal - ending hunger in America. The ideas that flow through the meeting rooms are overwhelming -- because these are smart and dedicated people. Gives me inspiration to do a better job each day.

Someone who really captures the energy of the conference is David Tester from the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma who has been video blogging from the conference. Watch his video below:
