Comment: NSAC Applauds National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health

Washington, DC, September 27, 2022 – Today, the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) issued the following comment, attributable to Mike Lavender, NSAC Interim Policy Director, in response to the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health:

“The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) applauds the announcement of the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health, ahead of the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. This whole-government strategy outlines a bold and essential commitment to ending hunger, promoting healthy eating, and increasing physical activity by 2030.  The Strategy proposes investments in local and regional food systems and science-based research, expanded incentives for fruit and vegetable consumption, and improving access to healthy meals for children. Importantly, the Strategy also highlights the need to target investments in support of historically underserved communities, areas, and individuals, including farmers.”

“NSAC believes that the path to long-term success in reducing hunger, malnutrition, and diet-related disease requires a holistic approach to the food and agricultural system that includes but is not limited to the proposals in the Strategy. That is why, in a recent joint effort, NSAC called on the Administration to ensure a comprehensive response, one that also considers how America produces, distributes, and makes use of its food.  We look forward to working with the Administration in the upcoming farm bill reauthorization and beyond, to develop and implement many of the investments and strategies that they have outlined.”
