White House Conference on Hunger Update

Details on shared goals of ending hunger and reducing diet related disease by 2030

One year ago on September 28th, 2022, President Biden hosted The White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health - the first conference of this kind to be held in over 50 years. At that time the White House released a National Strategy and announced over $8 billion of external commitments to achieve Biden's bold goal of ending #hunger and reducing diet related #disease by 2030 - all while closing disparities among the communities that are impacted most.

In support of the White House Conference and the Administration’s ambitious plan, the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation committed to awarding $10 million by 2030 to #nonprofit community organizations that are improving #foodaccess and affordability through the implementation of transformative and #sustainable solutions.

Now a year later, we’re well on our way of meeting that goal. Over the last 12 months, Stop Hunger has awarded over $2,000,000 to nonprofit organizations through our #foodaid programs like Summer Feeding, Food Backpack and On-Campus Pantry grants, as well as advancing efforts in food recovery and donation, workforce development and culinary and nutrition #education.

“Our mission is to ensure that every child in the U.S. grows up with dependable access to nutritious food, and the commitment helps bring us closer to that goal,” Roxanne Moore, executive director of Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, said. “We are proud to continue our work and are hopeful that the White House’s national strategy to end food insecurity will build momentum towards our goal of eradicating hunger”.
