CBP - Area Port of Chicago Feds Feed Families Virtual Food Drive
Please join Customs and Border Protection in the fight against hunger in our community!
Since the Feds Feed Families food drive began, federal employees have contributed nearly 70 million pounds of food for communities in need. Just last year, Department of Homeland Security employees donated over 1 million pounds of food to this effort. Even with this great accomplishment, the fight against hunger continues.
Did you know 1 in 7 people in northern Illinois rely on food provided by the Northern Illinois Food Bank?
You can help me put food on their plates by donating to Customs and Border Protection’s Feds Feed Families Virtual Food Drive. “Shop the aisles” of most needed items to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people in northern Illinois who are hungry. The funds we raise together stay right here, in our backyard, and will provide nutritious food like fresh produce, protein, and milk to our hungry neighbors.
Did you know the Food Bank can turn your $1 donated into $8 worth of food?
$20 provides a monthly food box to a senior who is unable to visit a food pantry.
$30 provides $240 worth of food to a family in need.
$60 a month provides a food-filled backpack to feed three children every weekend of the school year.
Consistent with CBP’s core values of vigilance, service and integrity, we each have the opportunity to support our local communities through this effort and make an impact beyond the work we do every day to keep America safe. Please consider what you can do to help knock out hunger this year. I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on our progress.
