Normally, for National Hot Dog Day, NAMI would celebrate by feeding those who work in various government buildings around Washington D.C. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the institute had to switch up the celebrations this year. They've teamed up with Feeding America and have been able to support a bunch of community partners throughout the country including the Food Bank of South Jersey based in Pennsauken.
