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.

A Note from our CEO

A Note from our CEO

It was a wonderful and impactful 2018!

This past year, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank (EPFH) distributed 15.5 million pounds through our network of over 125 community partner pantries, soup kitchens and shelters to ensure that hungry people are fed. These agencies are located throughout our region and are dedicated to tackling the challenge of easing hunger among our neighbors.

Your support in 2018 assisted us in working to alleviate hunger in the El Paso area. Three new programs expanded our distribution efforts to ensure that seniors, children and individuals are served nutritious food.

  • The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) provides 2,000 seniors at local community centers with food boxes each month.
  • The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) through the Texas Department of Agriculture services 185,000 low-income children across 7 west Texas counties.
  • Three Client Choice Mobile Pantries a week, in the same neighborhoods weekly, give clients the option to choose food items that are best for them in some of the most underserved areas.

Your support also contributed to 14 school pantries that ensure students, from Pre-K through high school, and their families receive food. During the summer and holiday breaks, many of these students don’t know where their next meal will come from. School pantries can help fill those worries.

Thank you once again for choosing to partner with us. We look forward to the rest of 2019 and are excited to continue feeding our community!
