About the Interfaith Campaign for Food and Nutrition Security
The Interfaith Campaign for Food and Nutrition Security is a consortium of faith-based and secular organizations committed to advancing the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition and Health. We are part of the White House Challenge to End Hunger and Build Healthy Communities.
This grassroots campaign by the Alliance to End Hunger, Bread for the World, Church World Service, Feeding America, Interfaith Public Health Network, Islamic Relief USA, and Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger engages civil society in the goal to “end hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by 2030, so that fewer Americans experience diet-related diseases like diabetes, obesity, and hypertension.”
Achieving the ambitious goals set out in the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition and Health will take a concerted effort across sectors at the federal, state and local levels. Mobilizing communities of faith is critical to the eventual success of these efforts. This campaign complements existing efforts of various organizations to raise awareness about the National Strategy, support needed food systems change and engage communities and individuals.
This campaign seeks to involve faith-based and secular groups and individuals by:
- Raising awareness of the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition and Health and the subsequent challenge to end hunger and build healthy communities.
- Creating fact sheets, toolkits and other resources to help participants connect to the National Strategy.
- Hosting educational meetings and webinars to help participants understand how they can engage with the National Strategy.
- Creating opportunities for participants to take action to advance the National Strategy.
