Questions about the Team Feed program
Q: What is Team Feed?
A: Team Feed (formally known as Set the Table) is a platform designed to allow supporters to create their own custom fundraising page as an individual or as part of a team in order to raise funds on behalf of Feeding America. If you would like to start your own fundraiser, visit the Team Feed page and select 'Register' to create.
Q: Who benefits from my fundraiser?
A: All funds raised through Team Feed represent a gift to Feeding America's mission to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. Disbursement of funds cannot be designated to specific member food banks within the Feeding America network.
If a Team Feed is created in honor of a person, it is the sole responsibility of the Team Feed creator to discuss his/her intentions to raise money for Feeding America in the name of the honoree with the honoree(s) and/or the honoree(s) family members in order to receive the honoree(s) approval of the endeavor.
Q: Who controls the content on the Team Feed fundraising pages?
A: The individual who creates the Team Feed fundraiser has the ability to post content and images on the Personal and/or Team Pages. Feeding America has the right to remove any questionable or hateful content posted to a Team Feed fundraiser. Feeding America also reserves the right to contact the creator or disable any Team Feed fundraiser at any time.

Q: How can one dollar help provide at least 10 meals?
A: Feeding America works directly with major manufacturers, retailers and other partners across the country to secure safe, healthy food that would otherwise go to waste. Through large-scale negotiating and nationwide donation programs, we're able to stretch y our donation to make the biggest impact possible. Through our partnerships, Feeding America also works to rescue this food before it's wasted — making a difference for the people we serve and for our environment. Because of these successful partnerships, every dollar you donate to Feeding America helps secure and distribute at least 12 pounds of food — equivalent of 10 meals — through our nationwide network of food banks.

Q: How can I host a traditional Food Drive by collecting food and other grocery items?
A: If you are beginning to organize a traditional food drive to collect food and other grocery items, it's important that you do so in conjunction with your local food bank. Your local Feeding America member food bank can provide advice on food safety, what types of items to accept or refuse, and what timing makes the most sense for your event. Often, our member food banks have regularly scheduled food drives throughout the year, and your neighborhood efforts will have the maximum effect if held in conjunction with theirs.
