This urban food policy forum focuses on the key question of how to translate into action some of the core ideas and solutions put forward at the 2022 White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health and the concurrently released National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. Invited guest speakers will offer insights into this question in the context of three central food policy goals: making free school meals available to all, ending college food insecurity, and reducing corporate influences on community food environments, including through reducing predatory marketing of unhealthy food and beverages to young people. On November 17, join us for this virtual Urban Food Policy Forum!
