“Feds Feed Families,” the annual federal government summer food drive, will run through Friday, Sept. 30. More than halfway through the virtual campaign NIH staff reported donating 76,390 pounds of food, as of Aug. 29!

There’s still time to participate. Send food via your favorite virtual grocer, designate a food pantry or even volunteer your time. Visit for details. 

Remember to record your donation, so NIH gets credit. Select “U.S. Department of Health and Human Services” as your department and “National Institutes of Health” as your agency. All donations will be tracked by pounds of food. For monetary donations, the site will use a national conversion rate from dollars to pounds.

If you have any questions about recording your donation, email
