    FMI Supporting Pillars

    Through FMI’s work on the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) Food and Nutrition Security Task Force we are also working with Tufts University to develop recommendations for the White House Conference.

    The White House has established Five Pillars to better define the scope of its Conference. FMI will focus on the following pillars:   

    1. Hunger

    Improve food access and affordability

    End hunger by making it easier for everyone — including urban, suburban, rural, and Tribal communities — to access and afford food.

    Stories of Grocery Stores as Destinations for Health & Well-being

    Food retailers, wholesalers and suppliers across the country have health and well-being programs for both employees and customers. These programs encourage health and well-being, support disease management, address food insecurity and encourage food safety best practices. Nearly all (84%) of food retailers surveyed by FMI report having established health and well-being initiatives for both employees and customers.
