Task Force on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health Submits Consensus Report to the White House
Advocates from across the nation released new nutrition policy recommendations to inform the upcoming White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health
Today, the Task Force on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health—a nongovernment, nonpartisan group of subject matter experts and multi-sector leaders, convened by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Food Systems for the Future, the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, and World Central Kitchen—publicly released its comprehensive report to inform the upcoming White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health.
The Task Force report represents the most far-reaching, consensus-based recommendations from diverse perspectives on U.S. food and nutrition policy since the original White House Conference report in 1969. Mission: Readiness member Rear Admiral (Ret.) Frank Ponds, U.S. Navy, has served as an active member of the Task Force, offering insight on how childhood nutrition and obesity impact our country’s future military readiness and national security.
The Task Force believes that these efforts—while not formally requested nor endorsed by the White House—can help elevate the best ideas across the United States to crystallize and catalyze historic, transformational solutions to some of the greatest food-related challenges facing the nation.
