NCC Promoting Measures to Overcome Hunger


The National Chicken Council has submitted suggestions to be considered at the September White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health.


Mike Brown, President of the NCC, noted “Lean meats like chicken help close the protein gap among Americans who struggle with food and nutrient insecurity that particularly impacts women, children, and older adults who have greater need for nutrient-dense foods to support healthy diets.”


Suggestions submitted by the NCC include:

  • Renewing the Farmers to Families Foodbox Program
  • Expanding Section 32 purchases
  • Expanding cold storage capacity and upgrading the long-haul trucking fleet
  • Increase storage, packing and distribution infrastructure especially for food banks and charities
