Causes: Children and Youth, Senior Services
This year continues to be a challenging time for many El Pasoans who struggle with the current economic conditions. El Pasoans Fighting Hunger is working to address food insecurity among children, families and seniors in the El Paso area. Demand for food has continued at emergency levels since the declaration of the pandemic. We have been experiencing another significant spike in need as inflation is hitting the poorest, most vulnerable people in our community very hard making it incredibly difficult for them to afford basic human necessities.
Donations from El Paso Giving Day will be used to cover the costs associated with acquiring and distributing food to seniors, families and children. 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.
**Thanks to our EPGD Sponsor, Epicenter El Paso, donations will be matched up to $20,000 this year! **
