'Fed Food' Hotline


Any employee of the federal government or a federal contractor — or anyone who lives in a household that is supported by a federal employee or contractor — struggling financially as a result of the government shutdown, can call the toll free number 855-859-4647 from 9 am to 5 pm EST or click the buttons below to be connected with food resources (such as private food pantries) near them and/or with anti-hunger volunteer activities so they can productively utilize their time off work. 

If you are in need of food resources, please click the "Get Help" button below and fill out the form to request assistance:

If you are able, donate to help Hunger Free America advocate for an end to the government shutdown to ensure federal workers are able to go back to work and feed their families and to prevent any disruption to future funding of the SNAP, WIC, and school meals programs.
