By RP1 (SW) Christina Clevenger Naval Support Activity Charleston

Naval Support Activity Charleston kicked off the 2015 Feds Feeds Families food donation campaign June 15, 2015.  The campaign will run until the August 31, 2015. The Feds Feed Families Food drive, an annual program sponsored by the USDA, collects non-perishable food to assist at-risk families in need. This year's local effort is being led by the commander, Navy Region Southeast for NSA and all donations will go to support the local Low Country Food Bank. The goal this year is to raise 5,000 pounds of food.

Units participating this year are: Naval Support Activity, the Joint Base Charleston Weapons Station Commissary, Navy Exchange, Navy Nuclear Power Training Command, Navy Health Clinic Charleston, Nuclear Power Training Unit, Naval Munitions Command Unit Charleston, SPAWAR, Marine Corp Reserve Training Center, Navy Consolidated Brig, 841st Transportation Battalion, Army Reserve Center, Navy Operational Support Center and the Army Strategic Logistics Activity Charleston. The command donating the most food will receive the Feds Feed Families plaque and own bragging rights for the next year. SPAWAR won the campaign in 2013 -2014.

Donation barrels at NSA will be located at the Welcome Center, Fleet and Family Support Center, Navy Marine Corps Relief Society, Chapel, Personnel Support Detachment, UPH, Balfour Beatty, the Galley, BLDG 84, the Security office and the Navy College." The FFF food drive is coordinated by the Chaplain's Office and the primary point of contact is RP1 (SW) Christina Clevenger.
