A historic moment to gather around the table following the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health  

In the wake of the historic 2022 White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health and release of the National Strategy, we look to engage in real and meaningful action. Our work and commitments towards the national 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 are imperative toward national change.
