NIH requests Information from the Extension members on Research Opportunities to End Hunger, Food and Nutrition Insecurity


NIH has posted NOT-OD-21-183 - Request for Information (RFI): Research Opportunities to End Hunger, Food and Nutrition Insecurity. Through this RFI we invite input on the approaches NIH can take to address hunger, food insecurity and nutrition insecurity through innovative and multidisciplinary research - including implementation science and health outcomes based research.  Several areas of investigation could potentially reveal strategies to advance nutrition science, improve coordination of federal food and nutrition policy, along with strategies and tactics to integrate nutrition with healthcare. This RFI is intended to solicit input from a broad array of stakeholder communities beyond the biomedical research community and healthcare sector.  Responses can be provided by email or an email attachment.  There are no forms or page limits.  Responses will be accepted until Nov 1, 2021. Please direct all inquiries to:
