Our mission is to combat the hunger crisis in our region by strategically procuring and distributing nutritious food through community partners…because no one should go hungry.

What is a Food Bank?


El Pasoans Fighting Hunger, El Paso's Food Bank, is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit hunger relief organization. The Food Bank is the distribution center that serves as a clearing house to solicit, inspect, repack and distribute food to partner agencies. These partner agencies are food pantries, churches, soup kitchens and shelters that feed the 1 in 8 adults and 1 in 4 children who are food insecure in our area.

Where does the food come from?

El Pasoans Fighting Hunger utilizes four sources of food procurement. They are the USDA, Feeding America, food rescue from grocery chains and food donations.

Companies, organizations and members of the community also play a key role by making generous monetary and food donations for El Pasoans Fighting Hunger to fulfill its mission.
