Feds Feed Families

2015 FFF Logo

Feds Feed Families was created to help food banks and pantries stay stocked during summer months when there is traditionally a decrease in donations and an increase in need. Through the amazing generosity of federal employees, the annual food drive has collected nearly 80 million pounds of food since the campaign began in 2009. Last year more than 10.4 million pounds were donated and provided to food banks and pantries.
