Livestream the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health

On September 28, 2022 the Biden-Harris Administration will host the historic White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health — and there is still time to get engaged.  
The Conference will bring together Americans from all walks of life to help accelerate progress to end hunger, improve nutrition and physical activity, and reduce disparities. Together, we can build a healthier and more equitable future for our nation.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Watch the Conference live — and learn about the soon-to-be released National Strategy for ending hunger and reducing diet-related diseases and disparities.
  • Find or host a satellite event like a watch party, town hall, panel discussion, day of service, or fun run. Convene or join an event in your community.
  • Share ideas and stories on hunger or diet-related diseases. The White House wants to hear about your experiences and your solutions for change.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
