Working Together to Nourish the Nation

2024 Annual Conference 

Each year, ACDA sponsors a national conference that is unique among other association events. Naturally, there are the usual educational and networking opportunities at an ACDA conference. Rather than being an event where manufacturers and processors, brokers and distributors showcase their products and services, this conference convenes in the spirit of cooperation among its members, with everyone focusing on how to strengthen USDA Food Distribution Programs.

2024 Annual Conference: April 21-24th

ACDA is excited to invite you to St. Louis, Missouri where we will Come Together to Nourish the Nation!  Join us to experience unbeatable education and networking opportunities. 

New this year!
