Let’s Heed the Call for Help!

Puerto Rico and Florida have been hit hard by hurricanes Fiona and Ian this September. Millions of people have been displaced, their homes damaged, and they lack the resources to meet their basic needs.

The good news is that there is hope, and that hope is YOU through Feds Feed Families!

Make a difference for those affected by these two devastating hurricanes by visiting https://tinyurl.com/FindFoodBanks to select and donate to a food network in Florida and Puerto Rico.

Please record your donations on the Feds Feed Families Hub at fedsfeedfamilies.ocio.usda.gov/ and indicate Hurricane Relief in the event field.

FedsWISH (Feds Walk in Support of Health and Hunger (Relief))

This week, Feds Feed Families is hosting a FedsWISH Walk (Feds Walk In Support of Health and Hunger (Relief)) to bring awareness to hunger in the U.S. and to generate food donations for the needy.

More than 38 million Americans do not have access to affordable nutritious food. That equates to 1 out of every 10 people is food insecure.

The FedsWISH Walk is a partnership between the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and Feds Feeds Families, supports initiative of the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health to end hunger, improve nutrition and encourage physical activity.

In the Washington D.C. region? On Thursday Sept. 29. We are encouraging federal employees in the region to participate in the FedsWISH in-person walk, stroll, or roll along the National Mall in Washington, D.C. It starts at 10:30 a.m. ET at the Lincoln Memorial.

Not in the D.C. region? During the week of September 26 through 30, we are encouraging federal employees nationwide who telework, work remotely or outside of D.C. to participate in a 30-minute walk, roll or physical activity from their work location or in their local communities.

During your walk or activity, please wear orange clothing for hunger awareness.

The cost to participate is free, but donations of canned goods and non-perishable food items to a local food bank are encouraged. For more information or to register

This week is focusing on seniors. Elderly adults living alone often face food insecurity. A Feeding America report found that seniors who used food assistance services preferred fresh produce and protein. They also sought simple, ready-to-eat items such as canned soup and cereal. When looking to donate this week, seek to donate foods that are low in salt and sugar.

In the spirit of the holiday season, the Soldier’s of HSC are organizing a food drive to support the San Antonio Food Bank from 06-22 December 2021.

3 Drop Off Locations Available:
HSC Headquarters - Located in the basement of Abel Hall
1st Floor, BLDG 4011
2nd Floor, BLDG 4011

If you are not located in or near one of these locations, please contact SSG Laramee (contact info below) to set up a collection point in your area.

The San Antonio Food Bank provides food and services to more than 530 partner agencies in 16 counties throughout Southwest Texas. Our service area reaches north to Kerrville, south to LaSalle, west to Uvalde, and east to Seguin.

Food drives are critical to the Food Bank's ongoing mission to collect and redistribute millions of pounds of food to individuals and families in Southwest Texas who don’t know where their next meals are coming from. Donations are voluntary and go towards helping a network of 90,000 individuals we serve weekly.

The Food Drive will start 06 December and run through 22 December. Though donations are completely voluntary, all HSC Soldiers and Civilians are welcome to participate by providing healthy non-perishable items. This drive is not intended for trainees. Attached you will find a flyer with the 12 most needed items. In addition to food, we will also be accepting baby diapers (any size) and dog food.

Thank you in advance for your support in the fight to end hunger in our local community!
