Cardboard and Plastic and Aluminum – Oh my!

We partnered with Expo New Mexico and the New Mexico State Fair for the first time this year to help feed our hungry neighbors while reducing waste.  We set up 42 recycling collection bins all around the grounds of Expo New Mexico.  When guests placed aluminum, plastic or cardboard in the bins, they helped solve hunger while protecting the environment.

Your Vote Counts During Hunger Action Month!

On Monday, September 15, we invite you to take a daily action during Hunger Action Month in the form of an online vote!  Roadrunner Food Bank will be competing with about 130 other food banks across the nation for a chance to win a $60,000 grant.  With a quick click of the mouse, your daily vote could earn funds for both Roadrunner Food Bank and three of our partner agencies that help us distribute food.

It’s Hunger Action Month, and We’re All About Orange!

Carrots, oranges, cantaloupe and habanero peppers– while there aren’t a lot of orange foods, the color orange can help us ensure that hungry people in New Mexico have enough to eat this September.  That’s because September is Hunger Action Month, and the color orange raises awareness about hunger.
