    County Listening Session for the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health

     

    As the front line of the social safety net, counties make significant investments in health and well-being to support our most vulnerable residents and are key partners with state and federal governments in efforts to combat hunger. In advance of the upcoming September 2022 White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health, the National Association of Counties (NACo) will host a stakeholder listening session for county leaders. This County Listening Session will provide county officials with the opportunity to share ideas and critical perspectives with White House officials and other federal partners to inform their national strategy to end hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by the year 2030.

    To prepare for the County Listening Session, attendees are encouraged to bring their answers to the following questions related to two key pillars of the White House Conference: 1) Improve food access and affordability and 2) Empower all consumers to make and have access to healthy choices.

    1. How has hunger or diet-related disease impacted your county and its residents?
    2. What specific actions should the U.S. Federal government, including the Executive Branch and Congress, take to improve food access and affordability and empower all consumers to make and have access to healthy choices?
    3. What specific actions should local governments, our state partners, and other community stakeholders (including non-profit and private companies) take to improve food access and affordability and empower all consumers to make and have access to healthy choices?
    4. What are opportunities for public- and private-sector partners to work together to improve food access and affordability and empower all consumers to make and have access to healthy choices?
    5. What are innovative, successful activities already happening in your county that could inform actions at the Federal level?
