For the first time since the Nixon administration in 1969, the White House will conduct a White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health. The conference will take place on Wednesday, September 28th, to address the transformative change needed in the U.S. to end hunger and improve nutrition among Americans, especially children. The 1969 conference sparked meaningful reform, including expanding the National School Lunch Program and Food Stamp Program (SNAP).

Conference speakers include President Joe Biden, White House Domestic Policy Adviser Susan Rice, USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra and Chef Jose Andres.
