Feds Feed Families Food Drive Underway

This news comes from the USDA:

Tuesday was the kickoff for the 5th annual Feds Feed Families Campaign.

The campaign is an annual food drive in which federal employees throughout the country collect food for distribution by food banks and shelters. In the past four years, federal government employees around the country have donated over 15 million pounds of food through the Feds Feed Families campaign. 

The Feds Feed Families program started in 2009 and has been managed on an annual basis by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. This year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will lead the effort in collaboration with managers from agencies across the government. The 2013 food drive officially began on June 1 and will run through August 28.

All Federal agencies across the country participate in the campaign and federal employees are asked to donate non-perishable food items throughout the summer. Those interested in additional information on the Feds Feed Families campaign can email Questions and inquiries can also be directed by phone to (202) 260-8953.
