Help sought with federal campaign to feed families PDF Print E-mail

This summer, USDA will lead the Feds Feed Families campaign with the support of the Chief Human Capital Officers Council and other agency partners, which officially begins on June 1 and will run through Aug. 28, 2013. The celebratory national kick off took place at the National Capital Area Food Bank on June 11.
Since the campaign began in 2009, Federal workers have donated and collected 15.2 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families across America. More than 85 percent of Federal workers live and work outside the Washington D.C. area, so we are helping communities in every state.
Last year we collected more than 7.2 million pounds of food, and are asking agencies this year to set their own goals again and beat their previous best! We know that Federal Employees will answer the call to help their neighbors and we are relying on you to help your Agencies collect more food than ever!
Please bring non-perishable food items and place them into a designated collection box located at the Grant USDA Service Center, 927 Central Avenue, or if you have questions please feel free to call us at (308) 352-4747.
Thank you for the work that you do to help your neighbors. We are looking forward to another exciting and successful FFF campaign.
