 Department of Energy Sponsors Food Drive, Aug. 10-31

The Department of Energy is again participating in the “Feds Feed Families” food drive this year. The DOE encourages its federal employees to volunteer by collecting much-needed food for those in need.

Since the campaign began in 2009, federal workers have donated and collected 39 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families across America.

At Jefferson Lab, the Thomas Jefferson Site Office (TJSO) will be collecting donations from its federal employees – to benefit the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula.  There is no expectation of Jefferson Lab employee participation in this program, although anyone wishing to contribute may do so.

If interested, items most needed include: canned meats (fish, ham, chicken, beef stew, etc.), canned fruits and vegetables, complete meals (boxed meals, pasta and sauce, mac and cheese, etc.), boxed cereals, rice, granola bars, peanut butter, and hygiene products (shampoo, tooth paste, deodorant, soap, diapers). Please don't bring items in glass containers.

Marked donation boxes for non-perishable food items will be located in the CEBAF Center lobby from August 10-31.

For more information, visit the Feds Feed Families website at: https://powerpedia.energy.gov/wiki/Feds_Feed_Families or contact Steve Neilson, TJSO, at ext. 7215.
