WACO, TX – On Wednesday, September 28, Baylor University’s Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty will participate in the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health, the first conference of its kind in more than 50 years.

The Conference brings government leaders, academics, activists, and Americans from all walks of life together to achieve the goal of ending hunger and reducing diet-related diseases in the United States by 2030.

“I’m honored and grateful to represent Baylor University in response to this historic call to action to address hunger, nutrition, and health,” said Jeremy Everett, executive director of the Baylor University Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty. “Access to food is a human right, but no one sector or organization can solve hunger by themselves. If we’re going to make systemic change on a local, state, national or even global level, we need both the public and private sector working in concert with each other. That’s what this conference is about. The last conference was a critical moment in our history, and I have no doubt we'll move forward from this year's conference with a renewed sense of urgency, dignity, and progress.”
