USDA Human Nutrition Coordinating Committee

The USDA Human Nutrition Coordinating Committee (HNCC) meets bimonthly to share information among agencies, coordinates the National Nutrition Month activities at USDA (each March), and functions as the steering committee for the Web site, nutrition.gov.

In addition to NIFA, other participating agencies include the Agricultural Marketing Service, Agricultural Research Service, Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, Economic Research Service, Food and Nutrition Service, Food Safety and Inspection Service, and National Agricultural Library, with liaison representatives from the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Food and Drug Administration, and National Institutes of Health.

The Human Nutrition Coordinating Committee is chaired by the national program leaders for human nutrition at the Agricultural Research Service and is co-chaired by the representative from the Food and Nutrition Service.
