Sponsor EFN’s Events

sponsor-events-header

Fundraising events ensure that Emergency Food Network can provide vital services to food-insecure families and individuals in Pierce County. Sponsorship allows you to promote your company and to communicate your culture of caring. Sponsoring EFN events offers a way for your managers, staff and clients to connect with your passion for fighting hunger, while providing an opportunity to spend time with clients and guests in a cause-oriented setting.

For more information about sponsoring an EFN event, contact Elizabeth Howe at elizabeth@efoodnet.org or (253) 584-1040.
