Share your ideas and stories for the upcoming conference on hunger, nutrition and health

The 2022 White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health is coming up in September 2022!
The White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health - only the second of its kind in over 50 years - is coming up in September 2022.

There is an open call for ideas and stories to inform the conference planning and a national strategy. Anyone is able to submit written ideas and stories directly by July 15th.

Farm to school practitioners, advocates, and supporters may have especially unique perspectives to share related to one or more of the five conference pillars:
  1. Improve food access and affordability
  2. Integrate nutrition and health
  3. Empower all consumers to make and have access to healthy choices
  4. Support physical activity for all
  5. Enhance nutrition and food security research
