Every summer, the USDA spearheads the Feds Feed Families campaign, encouraging all Federal agencies, including field components, to help food banks and pantries stay stocked during summer months when they traditionally see a decrease in donations and an increase in need. If you’re in the Arlington area, consider bringing your Feds Feed Families donations to AFAC!
Virtual Food Drive
Donate to AFAC through our Virtual Food Drive specifically tailored to Federal employees for the Feds Feed Families campaign! Since we purchase these items in bulk for best prices, your monetary donation goes even further than traditional office food drives!
Scroll down to “shop” on our Virtual Food Drive page to help feed our families in need. Once your donation is made, you will get an automated receipt
You can also register to host a food drive at your office. You can customize your own flyer listing the foods we need most and asking your colleagues to bring food in by August 30. At the end of the collection, AFAC drivers can pick up the food or you can deliver it to the warehouse at 2708 S. Nelson St, Arlington, 22206 for a glimpse of where the food will be served. Late donations are happily accepted after August 30.
If you’re hoping to recognize the office or team that collected the most food, be sure to take photos and count the items before they’re donated. Upon arrival at AFAC, donations from all teams will be weighed together. Food donations must be weighed in at AFAC before a receipt of donation may be issued.
