Washington, DC - U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director John Berry, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) and agency officials launched the third annual Feds Feed Families (FFF) food drive at the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB). In conjunction with members of the Chief Human Capital Officers (CHCO) Council and in partnership with the Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Defense (DOD), Berry announced this year's goal of collecting 2 million pounds of food and other non-perishable goods.
"American families should never have to go hungry," said Berry. "Federal workers are big hearted people who are eager to help those in their communities who need it most. Together, we hope to collect 2 million pounds of food nationwide this summer."
At the CAFB, Berry was joined by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) as well as Kathleen Merrigan, Deputy Secretary of Agriculture and Pat Tamburrino, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Civilian Personnel Policy and CHCO.
After remarks to an audience of Chief Human Capital Officers (CHCOs), Deputy CHCOs, agency coordinators, and AmeriCorps volunteers, attendees participated in a cooking demonstration lead by Mitch Greene, Chef in Residence at the Capital Area Food Bank. Greene showed how families can cook meals that are healthy, low cost and fun.
Food banks are most in need of donations during the summer months, when other donations are traditionally lower. Last year, Feds Feed Families raised 1.7 million pounds of food during the summer, shattering the 1.2 million pound goal.
