Too many people go to bed hungry in our community, and far more struggle with economic insecurity.
In Texas, 1 in 7 adults and 1 in 3 children experience food insecurity. But together, and with voices amplified, we can move the needle on hunger. To accomplish this, policy makers and stakeholders must understand the mission and goals an organization works to advance.
For El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank, those goals and values center around fighting for our neighbors who struggle with hunger and protecting policies that get us closer to eliminating hunger altogether.
When you sign up to be an El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank advocate, you will periodically be “called into to action”; here is how.

You can be one of many “story-tellers” for EPFH, bringing clarity and understanding of the food bank’s mission and goals. Shedding light on needs, fighting to lower barriers, and increase critical resources the Food Bank clients need are all examples of how you can help the people it serves not only survive, but thrive.
Adding your voice to ours by communicating with policy makers in favor of or in opposition to a cause or issue gives you the power to become an active part of the process of how decisions are made at the local, state and federal levels and how these decisions affect the individuals and families we serve.
