In September 2022, the Biden-Harris Administration announced more than $8 billion in new commitments as part of the call to action for the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. The Biden-Harris Administration hosted the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health on September 28, 2022, which catalyzed the public and private sectors around a coordinated strategy to accelerate progress and drive transformative change in the U.S. to end hunger, improve nutrition and physical activity, and close the disparities surrounding them.
President Biden’s goal is to end hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by 2030, so that fewer Americans experience diet-related diseases like diabetes, obesity, and hypertension. DRA is proud to join with the White House and our federal partners to support this initiative. To learn more about the work being done, visit health.gov.
DRA’s stated commitment is to implement prioritization criteria in its grant programs to support initiatives with a direct connection between economic development and healthy food access.
