Reduce Your Medication Costs While Helping Hungry New Mexicans!

 The Kaiser Family Foundation reports that one in four U.S. adults don’t fill their prescriptions due to cost.  Our own Hunger in America study shows that roughly 60% of hungry homes are making tough choices and unable to afford both food and medical care at the same time. For that reason, the Food Bank and Watertree Health partnered to bring a FREE prescription drug discount program to anyone in New Mexico.  Hungry families are able to use the FREE discount service and you are too!

Reimagining An App to Feed the Hungry

This article generously comes from one of our partners, Lisa Abeyta, co-founder of the phenomenal mobile technology firm based in Albuquerque (NM), APPCityLife. Lisa examines how civic technology can further the mission of hunger relief with us at Roadrunner. Thanks for letting us share, Lisa!   When people ask me what we do at APPCityLife, I usually give them the 30-second elevator description: we are making it possible for people anywhere in the world to use our platform and open data information to create solutions and tools which solve problems within their own community. But what does that actually mean? What does that look like in real life?

Finding Food Assistance at Farmers’ Markets
