Emergency Food Network’s Mother Earth Farm is an 8-acre organic farm located in the beautiful Puyallup Valley. The farm distributes more than 100 unique varieties of fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs annually to Pierce County food pantries and meal sites. Food from the farm is typically available to our neighbors in need within 24-48 hours of harvest. It would not be possible to provide this fresh food option to our neighbors in need without the help of volunteers. In the spring, volunteers at the farm assist with seeding, weeding, composting, and irrigation. In the summer and fall, the focus is on weeding and harvesting.

Mission Statement

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."

Description

"Currently, 1 in 10 people in Pierce County face food insecurity, and this need is continuing to rise. Through our 75+ Partner Programs (food pantries, meal sites, and shelters) all over Pierce County, EFN distributed over 14 million pounds of food in 2023 to our neighbors in need, including fresh produce grown at EFN’s Mother Earth Farm. This work was made possible by our 2,000+ volunteers, who worked over 12,000 hours in 2023. Volunteer work is vital in helping EFN pursue our mission of ensuring no person goes hungry. Volunteer opportunities include the Repack Project, Home Delivery, EFN’s Mother Earth Farm, and special events throughout the year. We hope you will join us!"
