Feds Feed Families 2023 Virtual Giving Campaign at NIH
This year, the National Institutes of Health will again participate in “Feds Feed Families", the annual federal government summer food drive. The 2023 virtual campaign will run June 26 through September 30. Many families are still facing food insecurity and hunger. The NIH community has always given generously through this campaign to support those in need. Together, we can knock out hunger!
We are once again operating this year's campaign virtually. We are not collecting food donations at on and off campus locations. Instead, the NIH community can donate online to fight hunger.
Please check out our website to learn how you can donate.
