Employees of the NNSA Production Office (NPO) have donated 17,348 pounds of food as part of the annual U.S. Department of Energy’s “Feds Feed Families” campaign. The campaign, which ended on Sept. 6, surpassed the goal of 17,000 pounds.
The NPO donations are supporting the efforts of the High Plains Food Bank, Amarillo, Texas, and the Second Harvest Food Bank, Maryville, Tenn.
The Feds Feed Families campaign is a voluntary effort undertaken by federal employees across the country to provide non-perishable food items to local food banks. Since the start of this effort five years ago, federal employees have donated more than 15 million pounds of food to support families across America.
