The annual Feds Feed Families campaign is officially underway! This year’s campaign will run from June 27 to September 30, 2022. Thanks to the remarkable generosity of federal employees, the Feds Feed Families food drive has collected over 100 million pounds of food across the country since 2009. In 2021, federal employees donated more than 7 million pounds of food to those in need.

For Americans dealing with food insecurity, and particularly children who are out of school, summer can be the most difficult time of the year. Food pantries and food banks are known to experience a decline in donations during the summer months, which impacts those already struggling. Through the Feds Feed Families campaign, you have a unique opportunity to help those in need.

This year’s campaign will be held virtually. Review the options below to get involved and remember to record your donations online in the Feds Feed Families Hub.

  • Donate Online. Purchase food online from the grocery store and have it delivered directly to a food bank or pantry. 
  • Drop Off Donations. Find a food pantry or food bank near you to drop off your donation.
  • Volunteer. Contact your local food bank about volunteering to sort and package food donations.
  • Plant-A-Row. Plant an extra row of produce in your own garden or harvest produce from neighborhood gardens and orchards that you can donate to local food banks or pantries.

Small positive changes can make a big difference. To find other volunteer opportunities near you, check out AmeriCorps.gov.
