Feds Feed Families campaign launches at joint base

(Via Ho’okele News)

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) is once again participating in the annual Feds Feed Familes program. Feds Feed Families is a charitable campaign led by the United States Department of Agriculture that collects canned goods and nonperishable food items for those in need. The campaign began this month and runs through the end of August.

Since the campaign began in 2009, service members and federal workers have donated and collected 24.1 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families across America. Nearly 9 million pounds of food were collected in 2014 alone.

Collection boxes for canned goods and non-perishable food items have been placed at several locations around JBPHH, including base chapels, the Naval Surface Group Mid-Pacific administration building, and the third floor of building 150. Individual commands will be placing their own collection boxes.

The Feds Feed Families program will accept donations through Aug. 31.
