Food Drive Now at Halfway Point

We are now halfway through this year’s Feds Feed Families Campaign. As of June 30, NIH reported donating 140,201 pounds of food. 

On June 25, NIH hosted a “Virtual Food Drive” event. Katherine Donnelly, nutrition education specialist from the Capital Area Food Bank, provided an overview of the extent of food insecurity in our region and described which populations are particularly impacted. She explained how local organizations are meeting needs during this uniquely challenging time. At the end of the webinar, Tim Tosten, associate director for program and employee services at the Office of Research Services, provided information on how NIH staff can help fight hunger through the Feds Feed Families Campaign.
