• FMI-The Food Industry Association, and The Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University said last week that they co-hosted "a gathering of food and nutrition sector leaders to forge solutions and spur collective action to support the historic White House National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health, which aims to end hunger, improve nutrition, and reduce diet-related diseases by 2030.

"The convening, Food Industry Collective: Commitments in Action, held in Washington, D.C. at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, featured panel discussions with key U.S. food and nutrition sector leaders, hunger and nutrition advocates, health care professionals, and scientists on the ways industry can be more innovative and ambitious to help achieve these goals … Experts presented existing food sector commitments and opportunities and challenges for additional innovative solutions and actions that could be scaled for greater impact. This included consideration of new multi-sector collaborations and achievable outcomes via panel and small group discussions, strategies to formalize commitments, and ways to work with the Biden Administration and Congress on the national goals in 2023 and beyond."
