The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center and The Department of Veterans Affairs is proud to assist the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) with the Feds Feed Families food drive and has established a national goal of collecting at least 450,000 pounds of non-perishable goods during this year's food drive. In order to achieve this goal, field facility participation is vital. Therefore, we strongly encourage everyone to donate.


Since the campaign began in 2009, Federal workers have donated and collected 15.2 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families across America. The food drive will run until August 28 and several types of items are needed. 


Please bring non-perishable food items and place them into a designated collection box located in your federal workplace.
 
Some of the most wanted items needed:
• Canned Fruits
• Canned Vegetables
• Multigrain Cereals
• Grains
• Canned Proteins
• Soups
• 100% Juice
