Food collected at the Pulaski USDA Service Center. 
In its sixth year the Pulaski USDA Service Center staff participated in the “Feds, Farmers, and Friends Feed Families” food drive.  Since the campaign began in 2009, Federal workers have donated and collected 24.1 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families across America.  More than 85 percent of Federal workers live and work outside the Washington D.C. area, helping communities in every state. This was their most successful year with 557 pounds of food collected.  The entire collection was donated to the Matthew 25 Thrift Store food bank. 
The USDA Service Center staff promoted their food drive with weekly notices to the public in the Pulaski Citizen and thru local radio stations. Next year’s challenge will be to reach out to local agribusinesses to “promote the cause” for another record year!
Our staff would like to say "Thank You" to all who contributed to our Food Drive.
