Listening Session Convening Partners:
The White House will hold a Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health in September 2022! We are pleased to see ending hunger is a key goal of the Conference. The Conference will be focused on addressing five main issues: ending hunger, improving nutrition, improving physical activity, reducing diet-related diseases, and closing disparity gaps by 2030. The Conference will serve as a culmination to announce a roadmap for the White House and Congress to address the five issues.
Please see President Biden’s announcement here. You can also see our statement here. Please see the letter we shared with the White House with ideas for Conference content here.
