President Biden Announces 2022 White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health
May 24, 2022
In September 2022, the Biden-Harris Administration will host a White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health to drive solutions to ending hunger, improving nutrition and physical activity, and reducing diet-related diseases and disparities.
The national conference will be only the second of its kind in US history. The first conference, held in 1969 during the Nixon administration, led to much of our current federal legislation related to food and hunger.
