TRAFFIC TO EL PASOANS FIGHTING HUNGER FOOD BANK WILL BE REROUTED TO AVOID BACKUP ON AMERICAS AVENUE
Beginning Monday, April 20, 2020, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank (9541 Plaza Circle) will be rerouting traffic to their food distribution area from Americas Avenue and Pan American Road to Carl Longuemare Rd.
People seeking food assistance will need to enter through Carl Longuemare Rd. and turn into Plaza Creek—where vehicles will then be directed to the food distribution area. The new route comes in an effort to make the passage to the food bank safer and avoid traffic backup on Americas Avenue.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis in March, the food bank has faced a soaring demand and is serving more families and individuals struggling with hunger. So far, the EP Fighting Hunger has given out more than 100,000 emergency food boxes to over 35,000 families and individuals at 5 major distribution sites and several mobile sites per week.
EPFH is working to ensure that individuals impacted by COVID-19 and related disruptions continue to have the nutritious food they need. The food bank’s crisis team is partnered with Feeding America, the network of 200 food banks, and local partners to ensure the safest handling of food and distributions to our communities.
