The Emergency Food Network knows the importance of a healthy diet and strives to provide nutritious foods to those in need in Pierce County. Through Mother Earth Farm and the Repack Project, EFN is making strides in providing a healthy and reliable food supply so that no one in Pierce County goes hungry. By utilizing EFN’s access to bulk fruit, vegetables, beans, rice, oats and noodles breaking them into smaller portions, and involving volunteers for labor, we will be able to provide a steady source of healthy choices for Pierce County food banks. It is only though the generosities of community members like you that our local emergency food system continues to be able to respond to those in need of emergency food. Our volunteers play a big part in the fight against hunger. We couldn’t do it without you!
