At Mother Earth Farm, we are now growing fresh, organic produce year-round for Pierce County food banks! During the winter months, we distribute more than 13,000 pounds of cool-weather produce such as leafy greens, Brussels sprouts, and tatsoi.
Stay warm and dry while lending a hand at Mother Earth Farm during our winter sessions! Volunteers are needed to help with weeding in our industrial-sized high tunnels. No experience is needed! EFN staff will be on site to provide you with training and supervision. Gloves and tools will be provided. Families and youth groups of all ages are welcome to volunteer at the farm (children ages 15 and under need to be accompanied by an adult).
Registration is required. Due to safety reasons and limited capacity at the farm, we ask volunteers to not drop-in. To register, please contact EFN’s Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or (253) 584-1040.
Does a stroll through in the park sound like a great way to spend your Saturday morning? At the Hunger Walk & 5K Run you can enjoy a morning of beautiful lake views and help your neighbors in need at the same time.
On May 5, Emergency Food Network is hosting the Hunger Walk & 5K Run at Fort Steilacoom Park in Lakewood. Participants in this 38th annual event will walk around Waughop Lake or run in a chip-timed 5K. Family-friendly activities and live music are also provided at the start/finish line.
