Like the rest of the world, the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank (EPFH) is closely monitoring the evolving Coronavirus situation and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), our national partner Feeding America and local entities including the El Paso County (https://www.elpasocountyhealth.org/). The EPFH is a vital relief organization during times of crisis; internally, we have created a task force that meets regularly to ensure the health and wellness of our volunteers, staff and the community we serve as we work to provide the basic necessity of healthy food across our 3-county service area through our more than 130 partner agencies and our direct programs.
We expect the need for food assistance to grow in the coming weeks and months. The Food Bank is undertaking the following actions to help meet the need in West Texas:
