‘It’s All About The Food’ campaign wraps up, community still urged to donate

On November 1, ABC-7 started efforts with El Pasoans Fighting Hunger to help feed hungry families in the Borderland.

The “It’s All About The Food” campaign, backed by Albertsons, Viva Auto Group and Sun City ER, has wrapped up for the holiday season but the community is still urged to donate.

Victor Nevarez, CEO of El Pasoans Fighting Hunger told ABC-7 donations are down which is impacting the amount of food it currently has in storage.

One in four children in El Paso is food insecure, meaning they don’t know when or where they will get their next meal.

Factors behind the alarming statistic include lack of income in households, underemployment or unemployment. Many times, the economic situation leaves parents choosing between putting food on the table or paying bills.

El Pasoans Fighting Hunger is the only food bank in El Paso that also serves as a distribution center for more than 120 food pantries in the region.

The organization serves an estimated 90,000 households with 65,000 of those households including children.
