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.
