2013 Feds Feed Families food drive results are in!
By Jonathan Yee
This year, Region 9 collected and donated more than 12,145 pounds of non-perishable food and other items in support of our local food banks in the Pacific Rim. Region 9’s donations alone accounted for almost 25 percent of the donations that GSA reported as an organization.
A total of 32 buildings in our region participated in the food drive, which took place from mid-June to the end of August. These efforts, led by key members of our service centers and field offices, will provide much-needed assistance to families in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas and Honolulu.
Federal agencies from across the country teamed up for the annual Feds Feed Families Food Drive to help those who are in need of emergency food assistance.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture led the Feds Feed Families campaign with the support of the Chief Human Capital Officers Council and other agency partners including GSA.
