Stabenow Addresses White House Hunger Conference

Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow addressed the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health Wednesday. The Michigan Democrat was part of a panel with U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra, House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro and New York City Mayor Eric Adams. Stabenow says, “As long as we have hunger and food insecurity in America, we have work to do, and as Chairwoman, I’m confident that the strong anti-hunger and nutrition framework we’ve built can help to tackle it.” In conjunction with the White House Conference, Stabenow released a fact sheet detailing the Committee’s recent work on anti-hunger and nutrition issues. That work includes a 21 percent increase in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, investments in the food bank network and focusing on nutrition education, among other topics. Stabenow adds now is the time to build on the progress to eliminate hunger and commit to a healthier America.
