‘Feds Feed Families’ Ends for Summer

The 2022 Feds Feed Families Virtual Campaign has ended. This summer, NIH donated almost 118,000 pounds of food to local communities to assist children, older adults, veterans and families in need. Across the federal workforce, more than 7 million pounds of food have been donated. 

While the campaign has ended, the need continues. According to the USDA, more than 38 million Americans do not have access to affordable, nutritious food. That equates to 1 out of every 10 people being food insecure. For individuals who want to continue to assist, there are ways to give year-round to support people who face food insecurity.  

Consider donating to a food bank or pantry. Purchase food online and have it delivered directly to a food bank or pantry or drop off food donations at your local food bank or pantry.
