Description
Emergency Foodshelf Network’s mission is to be an innovative food bank that serves the hunger needs of their changing communities. EFN’s main goal is to ensure that their partner programs have the resources necessary to serve their clients today and into the future.  These resources include: affordable and free emergency food, technical support, infrastructure necessary to agency sustainability, and connections to additional resources to which to refer their clients. 

Support foodshelves, on-site meal program and hunger relief programs with over 3.5 million lbs. of food annually. Their bulk-purchasing program allows foodshelves to order foods that are in high demand or not being donated. All food donated is available to the food shelves at no charge. They do not add a maintenance fee to their food when delivering it to member agencies. Fare For All is a program to provide access to frozen meats, fruits and vegetables at 40 percent below commercial grocery store prices. The program is all volunteer run and is open to all interested in participating. Other programs include: Lost Harvest Mobile Foodshelf Baskets of Hope All Seasons Food Rescue Harvest for the Hungry
