City Rep, local businesses team up to resupply El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank.

On Monday, District 5 City Council Representative Isabel Salcido, along with several local businesses, joined forces to resupply the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank (EPFH Food Bank).

Rep. Salcido shares that she has allocated a total of $13,500.00 from District 5’s discretionary funds to EPFH.

In addition, she received contributions in the amount of $6,500.00 from partners such as Segovia Distribution, Edwards Homes of El Paso, Omega Electric, Bravo Cadillac, Texas Consumer Credit and State Farm Insurance Agent Crystal Martinez.

She added that the donations were made “due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which include large number of lay-offs, economic strain, and the immediate need for food supplies for some residents.”

On Wednesday, August 12, 2020 from 9am to 11am, Representative Salcido and a group of volunteers, will be assisting in the distribution of a total of 1,728 USDA Farmers to Families food boxes and 600 healthy comfort food boxes.

The distribution will take place at Saint Mark Catholic Church, located at 11700 Pebble Hills Boulevard.

Salcido says the healthy food boxes will “include some of Hispanics favorite comfort foods such as potatoes, beans, rice, peppers, onions and tomatoes,” and she invites anyone in need to stop by for a food box.
