El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund

Last Updated on August 22, 2023 by Hannah Stevens

A group of volunteers from the local service industry has created the El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund (EPFB Workers Fund) to provide a grant for Workforce Solutions Borderplex to help food and beverage workers in this time of difficult crisis. They operate to help those in El Paso, Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and Sunland Park who have been recently unemployed or have been working reduced hours due to a temporary closure as a result of the pandemic.

Workforce Solutions Borderplex will award selected recipients according to established criteria and funds raised. Below is the application information.
