About the organization

El Pasoans Fighting Hunger (EPFH) is El Paso's only food bank and a member of Feeding America, the nation's largest hunger relief network. The Food Bank is the distribution center for over 132 partner pantries across the borderland region and collaborative hub for hunger initiatives that assists in SNAP applications and nutrition education. EPFH also distributes healthy and nutritious food to 235 client choice mobile pantries, which provide food to underserved/unserved communities. We currently serve 200,000 food insecure people with 1 in every 3 children and 1 in every 4 adults unsure of where their next meal will come from. Food insecurity is defined as being limited at times to having adequate food because of a lack of money and other resources.

Hunger does not discriminate. We serve children, single parent households, veterans, senior citizens, and working class families. For many of those we serve, they are often faced with tough choices to put food on their table. In 2019, EPFH proudly distributed 32.5 million pounds of food across El Paso, Hudspeth and Culberson Counties.
