Kelly Center for Hunger Relief
The Kelly Center for Hunger Relief is a local, independent nonprofit organization that has been helping El Paso families address hunger and food insecurity for 24 years. Your support during the Giving Day Campaign will help us continue to provide this much needed assistance. Our Food Pantry is our core program, but Kelly provides much more, including: wrap-around assistance to clients seeking economic mobility and self-sufficiency (FreshStart), a clothes closet for family and professional attire, free health screening events, on site job fairs, ESL, Nutrition classes, Zumba - and more!

Yes, the Kelly Center for Hunger Relief offers a Food Pantry five days a week, providing individuals and families with emergency food. But we’re so much more!

Kelly’s six primary programs areas are:

  1. Kelly's Food Pantry, which partners with the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank and Jardin de Milagros farm to provide nutritious emergency and supplemental food to residents of El Paso County. Today, the Food Pantry is making more than 17,000 distributions per month.

  2. Our FreshStart Program, which addresses the underlying causes of hunger by building long-term food security and self-sufficiency through coordinated case management and coaching. More than 360 individuals each year participate in the FreshStart Program.

  3. Our Community Clothes Closet, which provides free business and business casual clothing, enabling individuals to become more self-sufficient. More than 260 individuals visit our closet each month.

  4. As part of our commitment to providing fresh, healthy food to our community, Kelly partners with Jardin de Milagros. This local farm generously donates more than 100,000 lbs. of their freshly picked, highly nutritious produce to Kelly each year.

  5. & 6. And finally, we support hunger and food insecurity Research and Advocacy. Kelly serves as a living lab for multi- disciplinary research on hunger. We build awareness of programs and policies that decrease poverty and increase food security.
