Contributing to DOE/NNSA’s efforts to support the Office of Personnel Management’s Feds Feed Families campaign to collect non-perishable food items for food banks across the country, NNSA’s Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI) removed more than one ton of food from their pantries and store shelves; safely and securely transporting it to local food banks where it will be used to assist local area families in need. This year’s collection of 2,185.8 pounds of foods shattered last year’s total of 1,115.6 pounds of food donated to Washington, D.C., area food banks. This effort directly supported the DOE-wide efforts of collecting more that 190,000 pounds of non-perishable food items and household goods, that was donated to local food banks for direct distribution to those in need in the D.C. area.
