2022 Feds Feed Families (FFF) Campaign
AFEB is pleased to announce the launch of the annual FY22 Feds Feed Families Food (FFF) Drive, an annual volunteer effort that encourages employees from all Federal agencies to give in-kind contributions—food, services, and time—to food banks and pantries.
In FY21, a total of 45,705 lbs. were collected with 35,692 meals served. The winner of last year’s Campaign was The Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Health Administration (VHA) in San Antonio, TX. VHA contributed 14,825 lbs. with 11,582 meals served. VHA was recognized in front of their Leadership Staff and Peers with the roving trophy.
A special thank you to our top 3 FY21 FFF contributors.

The FFF Drive began in response to the 2009 United We Serve Act, which called on Americans to contribute to the Nation’s economic recovery by serving in their communities. During the summer months, demand for food increases significantly, but donations decline. FFF is a response to this cyclical occurrence. Since its launch, the campaign has collected more than 99 million pounds of food donations to support communities nationwide, with more than 7.2 million pounds donated in 2020 alone.
This year’s drive begins on June 1 and runs through August 31, 2022; however, donations and volunteering may continue throughout the year. The campaign is centered around a one-stop website, the FFF Hub (https://fedsfeedfamilies-
