'23-'24 Community Outreach Coordinator @ Emergency Food Net.
 
 
 
The mission of Emergency Food Network (EFN) is to provide Pierce County with a consistent, diverse, and nutritious food supply so that no person goes hungry. EFN started when community leaders recognized the need for an organization that could source food collectively for the emergency food system. It quickly became apparent that the need was not temporary, so EFN was officially established as an independent 501(c)(3) in 1991. We now partner with over 70 local food pantries, hot meal sites, and shelters. By leveraging government, purchased, and donated food with produce grown at our Mother Earth Farm, we are able to provide our Partner Programs with more than one million pounds of food each month at no cost to them. This work would not be possible without help from community partners and volunteers. EFN has more than 100 partners that host EFN Food & Fund Drives and 2,000 volunteers each year. Volunteers repackage bulk foods, pull weeds and harvest fresh produce at EFN's Mother Earth Farm, support a variety of roles at our fundraising events, deliver food boxes for EFN's Home Delivery Program, and more, all in an effort to distribute more nutritious food to our neighbors in need.
