White House Launches Challenge to End Hunger and Build Healthy Communities

President Joe Biden

As a continuation of the work started at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health, the Biden-Harris Administration is launching the White House Challenge to End Hunger and Build Healthy Communities. Through this Challenge, the Administration is encouraging stakeholders across all sectors of society to make bold and impactful commitments that will allow us to collectively achieve the goal the President set out: end hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by 2030 so fewer Americans experience diet-related diseases – all while reducing disparities.

Actions taken under the Challenge will help drive progress in implementing the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. The Challenge also builds off the success of the first call to action the Administration made and the commitments that were announced at the Conference.

By participating in the challenge, organizations (large or small; public or private) and communities are encouraged to commit to one or more of the following areas across the five pillars of the National Strategy:

  • Pillar 1: Improve Food Access and Affordability
  • Pillar 2: Integrate Nutrition and Health
  • Pillar 3: Empower All Consumers to Make and Have Access to Healthy Choices
  • Pillar 4: Support Physical Activity for All
  • Pillar 5: Enhance Nutrition and Food Security Research
