Center Releases Two Briefs Highlighting Hunger Policy Solutions
Recommendations Based on Research and Lived Experience Sent to White House
July 25, 2022
The Center for Hunger-Free Communities release two new policy briefs focusing on policy solutions to address hunger in America.
The first, titled Policy Solutions to End Hunger in America: Calling on the White House for Radical Strategy Change, is a comprehensive public policy and program action plan based on the Center’s 18 years of research expertise on food insecurity, health, trauma, and healing. It focuses both on specific programmatic changes and larger-scale philosophical shifts necessary to make a lasting impact on hunger in America.
The second, titled Changing the Narrative to Change the Policy: Ending Hunger in America, is based on a listening session the Center hosted with members of the Building Wealth and Health Network, Witnesses to Hunger, and The SNAP Participants Collaborative on June 29, 2022. It highlights their experiences of food insecurity and priorities for addressing hunger and improving health based on their lived experience.
Both briefs were submitted to the White House as part of an open call for feedback to inform a forthcoming national strategy to address hunger in America that will be released at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health in September 2022.
