About Us

The USDA’s Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships is part of President Obama’s Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships initiative. Our office works closely with the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships to build partnerships between government, faith-based and neighborhood organizations to better serve individuals, families, and communities. The main priorities of our office are ending childhood hunger, promoting healthy families, sustainably reducing global hunger and poverty, and encouraging interfaith dialogue and volunteerism among our partners, grantees and USDA employees. A particular focus is our work ensuring Latinos have access to our federal nutrition programs through USDA’s initiative, La Mesa Completa. A second major focus is on building the First Lady’s Let’s Move Faith and Communities campaign, with the goal of ensuring that all children in the country reach a healthy adulthood.
