DOE employees donated a total of 50,744 pounds of food to people in need through the 2019 Feds Feed Families Food Drive this summer.

The results are in, and DOE employees donated a total of 50,744 pounds of food to people in need through the 2019 Feds Feed Families Food Drive this summer. “I feel the agency did a tremendous job — in a very short window — to come together and help fight food insecurity across this nation,” said Melody Bell, EM’s acting deputy assistant secretary for resource management. Bell volunteered to serve as chair of this year’s DOE Feds Feed Families drive, which EM led on behalf of the Department. “We stepped up to partner with the champions across the DOE complex,” Bell said. “The total donations show the commitment and compassion people in this agency have for those in need.” Summer can be especially difficult for some families because their children don’t have access to free breakfasts and lunches provided by schools during the school year. The drive ended late last month.
