Progress since the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health
On Friday, March 24th, the White House hosted a livestreamed event to seek additional commitments and continue the work started 6 months earlier at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health to achieve President Biden’s goal of ending hunger and reducing diet-related diseases by 2030.
In September 2022, the Conference laid out a transformational vision for achieving this goal - including more than $8 billion in private- and public-sector commitments. PHA doubled its original commitment and pledged to add 100 million servings of vegetables, fruits and beans to the marketplace by 2025.
At PHA, we propel food equity under one unifying banner, Good Food for All, through which we:
Invest in communities with access to good food for healthier, more equitable food systems.
Inspire institutions – corporations, cities, charities – to supply healthier food options.
Innovate access to good food by working with partners to remove barriers to health-building foods.
Influence and empower families with awareness, knowledge, and skills for healthier eating habits by providing greater access and affordability to appropriate foods.
