MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
On May 4, President Biden announced that for the first time in over 50 years, the White House will host a Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health in September. The Conference, and the preparatory work leading up to it, will accelerate progress and drive significant change to end hunger, improve nutrition and physical activity, reduce diet-related disease, and close the disparities around them.
Prior to the conference, the White House has called for regional partner-led convenings to gather ideas and recommendations, reflecting a wide range of stakeholder views, on how the federal government can support efforts at the regional and local levels. America’s Farm to Fork Capital pivoted quickly during the pandemic to create innovative and effective programs. Valley Vision, along with several partner organizations, is convening a discussion to showcase the region’s innovative solutions, models and programs. Participants will hear about recent efforts made by local and regional organizations to strengthen the resilience of the regional food system, and contribute to the region’s input for the White House Conference. The August 9th listening session will build upon community stakeholder input from Valley Vision’s 2021 Sacramento Region Food System Action Plan, prepared in partnership with the Sacramento Region Community Foundation.
We encourage organizations and individuals who are passionate about hunger, nutrition, and health to join us for this important discussion on Tuesday, August 9th from 10:30 AM – 12 PM.
