    Foodservice Distributors Make Industry Voice Heard During IFDA Washington Insight Conference

The strongest organizations in Washington are those that can leverage their grassroots strengths to connect directly with lawmakers. Distributors have tremendous stories to tell about your people, your customers and the work you do in the community. This week was an opportunity both to tell these stories and to ask lawmakers to help be a part of the solution for critical industry issues.
