Feds Feed Families Food Drive

The FFF 2020 logo

Feds Feed Families is a government-wide campaign which encourages federal employees to give to food banks and pantries. 2020 marked 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 highlighted a summer of giving in June and July.
 
Since Feds Feed Families launched in 2009, the campaign has collected more than 92 million pounds of food for donation. In 2019 alone, federal employees across the country 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.
 

The 2020 campaign focused on online donations and virtual food drives, while also providing guidance for in-person donations and events as appropriate.
