Fighting Hunger One Meal at a Time

El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank (EPFH)

El Pasoans Fighting Hunger is El Paso's only Food Bank.

We are the food distribution center for over 130 partner agencies and programs including pantries, churches, schools, soup kitchens and shelters. Food is distributed where it is needed most throughout El Paso, Culberson and Hudspeth Counties.

Since 2012, EPFH has made a daily impact on hunger across our borderland region. In 2018, EPFH distributed 15.5 million pounds of food. Still, the need to feed food insecure children, families, older adults and veterans is high. Learn more about how we can make an instant impact on hunger together.

If you would like to volunteer for the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank, please submit your volunteer application.
