Hungry seniors face a tough choice…heat or eat. Heat or Eat? Which would you choose? One of the most distressing choices our struggling seniors have to make is whether they buy food or pay for their utilities. 61 percent of those served by the Food Bank report having to make that choice. Winter in New Mexico makes that decision all the more common as heat becomes a necessity. These are impossible choices for seniors to make as both are essential to good health, safety, and security. High heating costs mean the choice between going cold or going hungry has become a daily dilemma for many in New Mexico. Help us ensure that there is enough food on the tables for the 70,000 neighbors we serve each week. Your generous donation will help bring needed food to our network of community food pantries, soup kitchens, and youth and senior food programs, the sites where neighbors in need can find nutrition and hope. Thanks for giving!

On the surface, you’d think Kate was an ordinary girl with an ordinary life. But what you don’t know is that Kate is hungry. She usually does well in school, but lately, she hasn’t done well and has even missed some days. When her teacher asked her what was wrong, Kate told her that her dad had lost his job and now, there’s not much food at home. Kate is so hungry she can’t concentrate on her schoolwork.
