Task Force on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health Releases National Recommendations
Aug 23, 2022
H2HC is proud to be part of the Task Force on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health (Task Force) — an independent group of national leaders and experts convened by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Food Systems for the Future, the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, and World Central Kitchen. Today, we publicly released our comprehensive Report to inform the upcoming White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health — the first conference of its kind since 1969.
The Report has been shared with the White House and is now being publicly released. It contains 30 high-priority policy recommendations, undergirded by more than 200 specific actions for the federal agencies, Congress, and other stakeholders, to end hunger, advance nutrition, and reduce diet-related conditions in the United States. The Report also includes 12 potential business commitments to support these goals.
Advancing the bold, high-impact agenda outlined in the Report calls for political will and bipartisan solutions from the White House, Congress, specific federal agencies, state and local governments, non-government organizations, and the private sector. The Task Force members are banded together in their belief in the importance of taking decisive action to achieve transformative change to end food insecurity and hunger, improve nutrition, and reduce diet-related diseases.
The Task Force believes that these efforts — while not formally requested nor endorsed by the White House — can help elevate the best ideas across the United States to catalyze historic, transformational solutions to some of the greatest challenges around food facing the nation.
