Help families put food on the table

When children have enough to eat, they thrive. But in the U.S., 1 in 7 families with children do not have access to enough food―that’s 13 million children. While there are government programs that offer assistance, there are too many barriers that prevent millions from accessing the benefits they deserve. At Code for America, we’re changing that.

All donations will be matched up to $10,000 through September 30!

Thank you to everyone who donated to our 2021 fall fundraising campaign in September.

With your support, we surpassed our $10,000 goal to raise over $14,000! And, with the generous match by Ross Dakin, all donations had double the impact.

Together, we are helping families put food on the table, expunge criminal records, access flexible cash, and more. Thank you!

If you would like to contribute to Code for America, please visit our donation page.

Your donation today will support our work to help more families get the benefits they deserve.

Every $1 donated, unlocks $250 in government benefits for low-income families.

We work shoulder to shoulder with government and communities to ensure that children and families get the support they need to live with dignity and respect–and we invite you to join us this September during Hunger Awareness Month.

During the pandemic, Code for America connected over 6 million people to food and cash assistance. But the economic fall out remains widespread, and this is our moment to build a resilient, people-centered safety net that includes those who have been left behind, ignored, and marginalized for far too long.

We helped put an average of $2,000 of flexible cash in people's pockets.
