Feds Feed Families was created to help food banks and pantries stay stocked during summer months when they traditionally see a decrease in donations and an increase in need. In Washington, D.C., the Capital Area Food Bank receives collections and distributes them through its network of more than 500 partner organizations. Through the amazing generosity of federal employees, the annual food drive has collected over 80 million pounds of food since the campaign began in 2009.

All federal agencies, including field components, were asked to participate in the campaign. The field agencies shared their collections with local food banks, ensuring that the FFF campaign stretched across America and was visible and active in every state. Additionally, special events such as the National Chili Cook-off and the annual weekend golf tournament brought in substantial food donations.
