El Pasoans Fighting Hunger is working to address food insecurity among children, families and seniors in the El Paso area that has increased by 400% 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. Since the onset of COVID-19, we have distributed more than 1.5 million emergency food boxes. The need continues to be great as the pandemic forges on and affects so many families.
In the first eight months of 2021, we have distributed over 101 million pounds of food. For most of that time, the food bank provided enough food for three meals a day to 122,000 people, now that number has dropped to 84,229. This is due to losses of manpower and funding.
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. Your support will allow us to address the catastrophic food insecurity that has arisen due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The need continues, and we need YOU to help serve our friends and neighbors.
Will you be our Hunger Warrior? We urge you to say yes… because no one should go hungry.
