One year after the historic White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health held on Sept. 28, 2022, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service continues accelerating progress on the conference’s goals to end hunger, improve healthy eating and physical activity, and reduce diet-related diseases and disparities.
