EFN's McGovern recognized as a Community Hero

Aug 19, 2011 - 01:13 PM
Safeco Insurance has named Helen McGovern a Community Hero for her work with the Emergency Food Network of Pierce County and Tacoma, which will receive a $5,000 donation from Safeco on behalf of McGovern and McKendry Insurance.
Each year Safeco celebrates local heroes who make a positive difference through its Agent Giving Program, which is designed to focus on three areas: education, health and safety, and civic engagement. McGovern serves as executive director of EFN, which is based in Lakewood, Washington. She has revamped its distribution systems in response to the economy and helped several of the area's hunger relief agencies network into the Pierce County Food Coalition. McGovern also has improved government advocacy and created strong ties with wholesale food distributors.
Each month, EFN feeds more than 140,000 residents of Pierce County and serves 67 food programs. The organization distributed more than 14 million pounds of food to food banks, meal sites and shelters last year.
