White House Challenge to End Hunger and Build Healthy Communities

As a continuation of the work started at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health, the Biden-Harris Administration launched the White House Challenge to End Hunger and Build Healthy Communities. The Challenge was a nationwide call-to-action to stakeholders across all of society to make commitments to advance President Biden’s goal to end hunger and reduce diet-related diseases by 2030—all while reducing disparities. Actions taken under the Challenge will help drive progress in implementing the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition and Health.

The Biden-Harris Administration worked with the CDC Foundation to cultivate commitments. 141 stakeholders across all sectors of society stepped up to make commitments for the Challenge, totaling almost $1.7 billion. These investments were made by multiple health systems and insurers, sixteen cities, academia, community/neighborhood-based nonprofits, companies, philanthropy, state governments, trade and professional associations, national non-profits, and sports leagues. These commitments reach nationwide—in cities and urban areas, Tribal communities, and rural and small towns.

The Challenge also builds off the success of an earlier call to action that the Administration made and the commitments that were announced at the Conference.

Through implementation of the National Strategy and collaboration with the public and private sectors through the Challenge, the Biden-Harris Administration is working to ensure a healthier future for all Americans. View a list of all commitment makers
