El Pasoans Fighting Hunger
The Food Bank is the distribution center for over 120 partner pantries across the borderland region and collaborative hub for hunger initiatives that assists in SNAP applications and nutrition education. We currently serve 90,000 food insecure people with 65,000 of those households including children. Food insecurity is defined as being limited at times to having adequate food because of a lack of money and other resources.
Hunger does not discriminate. We serve children, single parent households, veterans, senior citizens, and working class families. For many of those we serve, they are often faced with tough choices to put food on their table.
