Get Involved in Ending Hunger and Improving Health 

On September 28, 2022, the White House held a conference to catalyze the public and private sectors around a coordinated strategy to accelerate progress and drive transformative change to end hunger, improve nutrition and physical activity and close the disparities surrounding them. The goal of this effort is to end hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by 2030.

Achieving this goal will require collective action. The nonprofit CDC Foundation has worked to identify cross-sector partners interested in making transformative commitments to align their efforts with one or more of the five pillars outlined by the White House. 
commitments to align their efforts with one or more of the five pillars outlined by the White House. 

 

Stakeholders are encouraged to think about commitments that:

 

·       Are big and bold (e.g., result in systemic, long-term change and meaningfully move the dial to end hunger and reduce diet-related diseases);

·       Help eliminate disparities and support individuals and communities that are most impacted by hunger and diet-related diseases;

·       Are innovative and test new models; 

·       Scale up evidence-based strategies to a national level; and 

·       Go beyond what the federal government can do. 

 

While the conference is over, you can put forward potential ideas for a commitment. At this time, the CDC Foundation is not able to follow up on each potential commitment. If there is an interest in proceeding with discussions, a member of the CDC Foundation will reach out to you.


Please note that if you are seeking funding for your organization as part of this initiative, the CDC Foundation at present is not seeking organizations to fund.
