Growing Vegetables and Awareness Since 1982

Emergency Food Network provides nearly 13 million pounds of healthy, nutritious food annually at no cost to over 60 food banks, hot meal sites and shelters for distribution to low-income families and individuals.

In 2013, programs in our network accommodated 1,404,755 total visits. EFN spent nearly $1.45 per visit to assure that each time a community member walked into a food program with nothing, they walked out with enough food for 9 meals.

With an administrative overhead of under 4%, EFN distributes $12 worth of food for every $1 we receive.
