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.
