WHITE HOUSE CONFERENCE
Virtual Listening Sessions on Hunger, Nutrition and Health in Indian Country Lead to Joint Report
Across Indian Country, Tribal Nations have been investing in the systems, policies, and programs that will re-center Indigenous health and wellbeing, restore Native food systems, and promote thriving Tribal communities for current and future generations. Innovation in food systems and nutrition has long been part of Indigenous lifeways. Supporting and advancing the future of Native food systems includes the improvement or development of agricultural infrastructure.
The Native American Agriculture Fund (NAAF) in partnership with the Native Farm Bill Coalition (NFBC) hosted two virtual convenings to gather input for a report that will inform the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health on food and nutrition disparities in Indian Country. The NFBC also hosted a Tribal caucus and informational briefing session prior to the official Nation to Nation consultation on the conference.
