June 1 – August 31, 2017
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 31, 2017. 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 nearly 57.2 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families at risk of hunger across America. Last year, more than 17.9 million pounds of food were collected. Agencies are encouraged this year to set their own goals again and beat their previous best!
