For the first time in more than half a century, President Biden this week hosted the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. The event was designed to catalyze action for the millions of Americans struggling with food insecurity and diet-related diseases like diabetes, obesity, and hypertension.
Various representatives from the agriculture industry attended, and that included National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) CEO Colin Woodall. He says a letter they sent to the White House a few weeks back helped in their efforts to be involved in the Conference to represent the cattle industry.
And Woodall notes the Conference mostly focused on the needs of nutritious foods.
The White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health looked at a transformational vision for ending hunger and reducing diet-related disease by 2030, all while closing disparities among the communities that are impacted most.
