EL PASO, Texas -- Inflation is making it hard for people like Kimberly Johnson, who is working four different jobs right now just to make ends meet. 

Prices for food at home have increased prices by 13.5% for year ended August 2022, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In 2021, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank distributed 139.6 million pounds of food across El Paso, Hudspeth and Culbertson Counties.

The El Paso Fighting Hunger Food Bank has 72 members that operate, 41,000 volunteer hours were recorded in 2021, there are 132 partner agencies, and 993 mobile pantries for those who do not have access to a local food pantry nearby.
