The Need is Great, and Continues to Increase

Combatiendo el hambre una comida a la vez

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

From March 17 to date the EPFH food bank has already surpassed food distribution for 2019. Last year the food bank distributed over 32.5 million pounds of food in the Borderland, this year through May, EPFH has already distributed more than 50 million pounds of food. 15 million pounds of food distributed in May alone. On average, all the primary sites distribute food to 8,000 families a day.

Even more astounding is that EPFH has now distributed over 800,000 emergency food boxes in the community.

The need continues to be great as the pandemic forges on and affects so many families. Children who no longer get breakfast and lunch at school and seniors who now find themselves shut-in. It has affected all in such dire ways.

As long as the clients keep coming, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger will be here to help … because no one should go hungry. If you are struggling to put food on your table and need assistance come to the food bank.

Check out the “Need Help” section of our website or call for information on one of the locations nearest you.

We are the food distribution center for over 132 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.

El banco de alimentos, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger, es el único banco de alimentos en El Paso.

Desde el 17 de marzo hasta la fecha, el banco de alimentos de EPFH ya superó la distribución de alimentos para 2019. El año pasado, el banco de alimentos distribuyó más de 32.5 millones de libras de alimentos en la frontera, este año hasta mayo, EPFH ya ha distribuido más de 50 millones de libras de alimentos, 15 millones de libras de alimentos distribuidos solo en mayo. En promedio, todos los sitios primarios distribuyen alimentos a 8,000 familias por día.

Aún más sorprendente es que EPFH ha distribuido más de 500,000 cajas de alimentos de emergencia en la comunidad.

La necesidad es grande, y continúa aumentando durante la pandemia que ha afectado a tantas familias, niños que ya no reciben desayuno y almuerzo en la escuela y personas mayores que ahora se encuentran encerrados. Ha afectado a todos de manera tan grave.
