La administración Biden-⁠Harris anuncia casi $1.7 mil millones en nuevos compromisos cultivados a través del desafío de la Casa Blanca para acabar con el hambre y construir comunidades saludables


The Challenge was a nationwide call-to-action to stakeholders across all of society to make commitments to advance President Biden’s goal to end hunger and reduce diet-related diseases by 2030—all while reducing health disparities. The $1.7 billion in new commitments announced today build on the $8 billion in commitments announced at the historic White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health—held for the first time in 50 years in September 2022—and complements the Biden-Harris Administration’s work to implement the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. The Biden-Harris Administration worked with the CDC Foundation to cultivate commitments.

The commitments announced today also build on the new partnership between major sports leagues, players associations, and the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition (the Council) to boost physical activity and increase nutrition programming across the country that the Administration announced earlier this month. Fourteen sports leagues and players associations signed agreements with the Council to expand access to physical activity, integrate messaging and education around nutrition, and promote healthy lifestyles to the millions of people who engage in their programs every year.
