Emergency Food Network 

Mother Earth Farm

Emergency Food Network (EFN) is the sole nonprofit food distributor in Pierce County, Washington, where 1 in 9 residents face food insecurity. An essential community resource for over 40 years, EFN purchases and distributes more than 600,000 pounds of food annually — including produce grown at Mother Earth Farm.

Located in the pristine Puyallup Valley, Mother Earth Farm is an 8-acre organic farm dedicated to relieving hunger with nutritious, organic food. Every year, the farm harvests and distributes more than 80,000 pounds of fresh produce to local food pantries, offering 100+ varieties of highly desired fruits, vegetables and herbs to pantry guests from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.

Mother Earth Farm will receive a $40,000 grant from Simply Organic in 2023 to continue growing a diverse selection of produce that meets the wide-ranging needs of pantry guests and celebrates their unique culinary cultures.
