El Pasoans Fighting Hunger is working to address food insecurity among children, families and seniors in the El Paso area that has increased by 600% as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Donations from El Paso Giving Day will be used to cover the costs associated with acquiring and distributing food to seniors, families and children.
Your support will allow us to address the catastrophic food insecurity that has arisen due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has directly impacted the ability of individuals to provide financially for themselves and their families. Since the onset of COVID-19, we have distributed more than 1 million emergency food boxes.
The community will need long-term distribution of emergency food boxes. The efforts of El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank will ensure that these services are available to all families who are food insecure – including the 200,000 who struggle with food insecurity long-term. However, the need is still strong. More than 1/4 of El Pasoans have to regularly choose between purchasing food or covering housing or utilities.
In short, we need YOU to help serve our friends and neighbors.
Will you be our Hunger Warrior? We urge you to say yes… because noone should go hungry.
