Feds Feeds Families was created to help food banks and pantries stay stocked during summer months when they traditionally see a decrease in donations and an increase in need. All federal agencies, including field components, are asked to participate in the campaign. The field agencies share their collections with local food banks, ensuring the Feds Feed Families campaign stretches across America and is visible and active in every state.

Each one of the seven stations throughout the Spokane Sector, as well as the Spokane Sector Headquarters, took part in this year’s campaign which began June 1 and ended Aug. 31. This year’s donations were provided locally to the Spokane Veterans Center, 13109 Mirabeau Parkway, Spokane Valley. More information about the Feds Feed Families campaign can be found at either or on Facebook at

“We take pride in supporting our local communities, Spokane Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent David BeMiller said. “Not only do we work in them, but we live in and care for them as well.”
