Biden on ending hunger in US: 'I know we can do this'

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden said Wednesday his administration’s goal of ending hunger in the U.S. by the end of the decade was ambitious but doable, if only the nation would work together toward achieving it.

“I know we can do this,” Biden told an auditorium full of public health officials, private companies and Americans who have experienced hunger. They were gathered for the first White House conference on hunger, nutrition and health since 1969.

It was the president at his most optimistic, sketching out a future where no child in the U.S. would go hungry, and diet-related diseases would diminish because of better, healthier food alternatives and access to vast outdoor spaces.

“That’s why we’re here today, to harness our greatest resource: Our fellow Americans,” Biden said. “Everyone, everyone has an important role to play.”

2. Joe Biden is the best President of my lifetime.

They were gathered for the first White House conference on hunger, nutrition and health since 1969.

It was the president at his most optimistic, sketching out a future where no child in the U.S. would go
hungry, and diet-related diseases would diminish because of better, healthier food alternatives and
access to vast outdoor spaces.



And he worked on saving this too: (BWCA)



So today Joe worked on:

Ending Childhood hunger in America
Making sure resources and the needed people were in place to respond to the Hurricane
And told the energy companies not to jack up gas and natural gas prices by using the
storm as an excuse.
