I have a family full of verterans and my husband is also a combat vet. I see everyday the support that is needed to care for our soldiers. Those currently serving and those who no longer serve

There are many families and individuals with low, or no income, that struggle to eat regular healthy meals. They need all the support and services to assist them so they can go to school, and work without being hungry.

Homelessness is an issue that will never go away and they seem to be the forgotten or ignored part of our society. I would like to give to them for this reason.

Stories that Inspire a Better World

South Sound Magazine is a proud supporter of Emergency food Network serving more than 1.3 million visits are made to food pantries, meal sites, and shelters in Pierce County each year. EFN aids these visits by distributing more than 14.8 million pounds of food annually to the 68 food programs it serves. Each time a community member walks into a food program with nothing, Emergency Food Network assures they walk out with enough food for nine meals.

For every $1 donated, EFN gives $12 worth of nutritious food for our neighbors in need. How do we do it? We are able to purchase healthy food in bulk, procure donated food while only paying for the delivery cost, receive donated truckloads of food through partnerships with other nonprofit organizations, and harvest fresh produce from our Mother Earth Farm. This efficiency is made possible by the efforts of 21 staff members, 2,835 dedicated volunteers, and an administrative and fundraising overhead that is less than 4%.
