White House Hosting Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health
The White House announced they would be convening a White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health in September. Millions of Americans struggle with hunger. Millions more struggle with diet-related diseases—like heart disease and diabetes—which are some of the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S. It’s been more than 50 years since the first and only White House Conference on Food, Nutrition, and Health was held in 1969. Half a century later, the 2022 White House Conference will catalyze the public and private sectors around a coordinated strategy to accelerate progress and drive transformative change in the U.S. to end hunger, improve nutrition and physical activity, and close the disparities surrounding them.
