About Us

H2HC aligns food, health, and policy through an equity lens to help us move together toward a healthy, food- and nutrition-secure future for everyone.

Our Purpose

The Hunger to Health Collaboratory (H2HC) is an innovative national model. We convene cross-sector thought leaders to explore systemic long-term solutions to food, health, and nutrition challenges with a focus on equity and the social determinants of health. We include diverse voices and perspectives to help us move together toward a healthy, food- and nutrition-secure future for everyone.

Focus on Equity

Hunger is a health issue, and everyone should have access to sufficient, affordable, nutritious food regardless of their circumstances or location. H2HC is committed to including diverse community voices and perspectives to help us move together toward a healthy, food- and nutrition-secure future for everyone.

Our History

The Hunger to Health Collaboratory (H2HC) was founded in 2018 as a model for cross-sector stakeholders to take collective action to address the health consequences of hunger.

Listen to H2HC founder Catherine D’Amato, interviewed by Louisa Kasdon of The Food Voice, describe the beginnings of H2HC.

Our Collaborators

H2HC is led by a cross-sector Governing Council whose members have extensive industry and nonprofit leadership experience. H2HC is also supported by its Advisory Council members, Partners, and its Executive Director and staff.

H2HC convenes cross-sector stakeholders, advocates for legislation and philanthropy, and supports critical research.
