We don’t have a fundraising goal, but the virtual food drive page requires one. Please disregard that number.
The Feds Feed Families Food Drive is a voluntary federal-wide and nationwide effort for employees to collect and donate food for those in need.
The Feds Feed Families Food Drive began in response to the 2009 United We Serve Act, which called on Americans to contribute to the nation’s economic recovery by serving in their communities. During the summer months, demand for food increases significantly, but donations decline. Feds Feed Families is a response to this cyclical occurrence. Since its launch, the campaign has collected more than 107 million pounds of food donations to support communities nationwide.
The 2023 campaign focuses on online food donations, while also providing guidance for in-person donations and events as appropriate. The Feds Feed Families Food Drive will run locally from August 7 -September 30, 2023.
Because the Feds Feed Families Food Drive is taking place during a Gleaners matching gift campaign, every donation on our food drive page will be matched 1:1. With Gleaners’ bulk purchasing power and efficient distribution network, 6 meals can be provided for every dollar donated helping close the gap on food insecurity.
