Thank you to everyone that brought in donations to our food drive at the Summer Picnic! You all made this a huge success! Please take a moment to read the thank you email below from Emergency Food Network, which includes our donation totals! Great job everyone!!!
On behalf of everyone at Emergency Food Network, I want to thank you for having a Food and Fund Drive. Your group donated a total of 671 pounds of food! These donations are equivalent to being able to provide 537 meals to our neighbors in need! Thank you! We will soon share your generous donation on our Facebook page if that is alright with you.
Food and Fund Drives play an important role in helping us meet the needs of our hungry Pierce County neighbors. Each month in Pierce County there are more than 116,000 visits (and rising) made to emergency meal sites by children, seniors and adults seeking help. Through the generosity of our community, we are able to distribute 15.5 million pounds of food annually. The food is distributed to the 75+ food banks, hot meal sites, and shelters that we serve in Pierce County which goes directly to our neighbors in need.
If you have any questions or would like additional information about Emergency Food Network, our events, or volunteer opportunities, please do not hesitate to contact me at (253) 584-1040 or via email.
Thank you for your commitment and dedication to be a part of the solution in helping to relieve hunger in Pierce County.
