June 1 – August 27, 2014
This summer, Federal employees will come together to nourish communities nationally. USDA, once again, is leading the Feds Feed Families campaign, which runs June 1 through August 27, 2014. All Federal agencies, including Field components, are asked to participate.
The donations from the Feds Feed Families Food Drive are especially important, because they come at a time of year when donations traditionally decline.
Since the campaign began in 2009, Federal workers have donated and collected 24.1 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families at risk of hunger across America. Last year, nearly 9 million pounds of food were collected. Agencies are encouraged this year to set their own goals again and beat their previous best!
