Nayak Farms is honored to be working in collaboration with the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health
On September 28th in Washington D.C., Nayak Farms of Gardner, Illinois was recognized at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health (WHCHNH) for their dedication and pledge to tackling food insecurity in Illinois and the Midwest. The invite-only WHCHNH is the first conference in over 50 years since President Nixon’s White House Conference on Food, Nutrition and Health to unify Americans around the goal of ending hunger and reducing diet-related disease by 2030.
A Unique Story
