May is Hunger Awareness Month! Donations made up almost 60% of the food Emergency Food Network provided to food pantries, meal sites, and shelters in Pierce County in 2021. However, we have already seen a decrease in these in-kind food donations so far in 2022. You can help by hosting a Food & Fund Drive with EFN! The food you donate will go directly to our 75+ Partner Programs to give to our neighbors in need and the funds will be used to purchase food and pay freight for donated truckloads of food.

During this time of year, we want to encourage you to collect peanut butter for your drive! Peanut butter is a very versatile food, and great source of protein, so we love receiving it!
