The Biden-Harris Administration National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health (2022)

The Biden-Harris Administration has released its National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health in advance of tomorrow’s historic White House Conference.

The National Strategy identifies ambitious and achievable actions the Administration will pursue in its work to end hunger by 2030 across five pillars:

    1. Improve Food Access and Affordability: End hunger by making it easier for everyone—including individuals in urban, suburban, rural, and Tribal communities, and territories—to access and afford food.
    2. Integrate Nutrition and Health: Prioritize the role of nutrition and food security in overall health—including disease prevention and management—and ensure that our health care system addresses the nutrition needs of all people.
    3. Empower All Consumers to Make and Have Access to Healthy Choices: Foster environments that enable all people to easily make informed, healthy choices, increase access to healthy food, encourage healthy workplace and school policies, and invest in public education campaigns that are culturally appropriate and resonate with specific communities.
    4. Support Physical Activity for All: Make it easier for people to be more physically active—in part by ensuring that everyone has access to safe places to be active—increase awareness of the benefits of physical activity, and conduct research on and measure physical activity.
    5. Enhance Nutrition and Food Security Research: Improve nutrition metrics, data collection, and research to inform nutrition and food security policy, particularly on issues of equity, access, and disparities.
