Food and fund drives play an essential role in our ability to distribute consistent, diverse, and nutritious food. They supply more than 150,000 meals to neighbors in need each year and lend variety to the bulk staples food pantries receive. Donated funds allow EFN to purchase food in bulk, solicit food donations, and transport food to pantries all over the county. If you’re looking for a way to support Emergency Food Network from your home or work - consider hosting a virtual or physical food and fund drive!
Need boxes? Feel free to pick up as many of these collapsible cardboard boxes as you need!
The mission of Emergency Food Network is "to provide Pierce County with a consistent, diverse and nutritious food supply so that no person goes hungry."
Currently 1 in 7 people in Pierce County faces food insecurity, and the need is always growing. Through our 76 partner programs and our eight acre Organic farm in Puyallup, EFN distributed nearly 20 million dollars worth of food 2018 alone. 14,500 hours of time given by our volunteers made this work possible. Volunteer opportunities include the Repack Project, Break Bags, weeding at EFN's Mother Earth Farm, and more. We hope you will join us!
