The Need Continues

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

In 2020 from March 17 to December 31 the EPFH food bank dramatically surpassed food distribution for 2019 by reaching a record of 139,700,000 pounds of food distributed across the Borderland.

In 2019 the food bank distributed over 32.5 million pounds of food compared to the 139,700 million distributed in 2020 during the worldwide pandemic. An average of 15 million pounds were distributed from May to December of 2020. On average, all the primary sites distribute food to between 9,000 and 10,000 families a day.

EPFH has now distributed over 1,536,247 emergency food boxes in the community.

In the first 8 months of 2021 the food bank has distributed 101 million pounds of food. The food bank is now ranked 3rd in the nation in food distribution.
