The White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health—to be held in September—is an opportunity to catalyze a broad and inclusive anti-hunger movement across the U.S. With this call to action from Congress and the administration, we are on the precipice of real and lasting change to improve the lives and health of millions of people throughout the nation.
As part of funding this conference, Congress has required a report from the White House outlining a national strategy to end hunger in America by 2030. To help inform this anti-hunger road map, Feeding America proposed to the White House a range of policy solutions to meet the needs of people experiencing hunger today and address the root causes of food insecurity so we can end hunger permanently. This work must also focus on eliminating the policies, practices and systems that perpetuate racially and geographically disparate rates of hunger.
The Feeding America network strives to keep people facing hunger at the center of all we do. That is why these policy recommendations include insights from people with lived experience of food insecurity, gathered through our ongoing nationwide community listening initiative: Elevating Voices to End Hunger Together. In the coming months, we will share additional solutions informed by people facing hunger.
