2020 marks the 11th annual government-wide Feds Feed Families (FFF) campaign, which encourages employees from all federal departments and agencies to give in-kind contributions -- food, services, and time -- to food banks and pantries. This year’s campaign highlights a summer of giving in June and July, along with seasonal reminders to donate throughout the year.
The 2020 campaign focuses on online donations and virtual food drives, while also providing guidance for in-person donations and events as appropriate. Federal employees can go to the new website, the FFF Hub, to find out how and where to donate online or in-person at food banks and food pantries, how to organize virtual food-drives, how to find field or warehouse gleaning opportunities, and how to share donation success stories.
Since Feds Feed Families launched in 2009, this campaign has collected more than 92 million pounds of food for donation. In 2019, federal employees donated more than 2.8 million pounds. USDA is the designated lead agency for the National Feds Feeds Families campaign for the U.S. government nationwide.
