Volunteers power Roadrunner Food Bank. It’s as simple as that. We could not help provide food and resources to the 70,000 people in our community who face hunger without the help of volunteers. We invite you to take an active role in solving hunger and join us and the Feeding America network by pledging to volunteer. When you give your time you get back something amazing in return, maybe even life-changing: The feeling that you personally are helping put food into the hands of people who need it. It’s proof that no matter what happens in the world, you absolutely have the power to make a difference in the lives of others. But don’t take our word for it. Sign up to volunteer and find out for yourself. Volunteer activities can range from packing, sorting and prepping food for distribution; helping to staff an event; or providing access to specialized skills. Follow these simple steps to start making a difference in your community: Register or contact us to let us know how you’d like to volunteer at the Food Bank either as an individual, with your family, your company, or a group. Make your pledge official by registering with our national organization Feeding America here Share your experience and the impact of your work on social media to challenge others to also make the pledge. Use #FoodBankVolunteer and #FeedingAmerica in your social posts. Already a volunteer? Take the pledge again this year to continue join us hunger.

Morgan Stanley has been a critical partner in working with Roadrunner Food Bank to ensure that low-income children and their families have access to a source of nutritious food to prepare at home. The funding Morgan Stanley has previously provided to the Food Bank’s Childhood Hunger Initiative is already providing 1.3 million pounds of food to elementary schools across the state.
New Mexico’s largest food bank is reflecting on a record-setting year, thanks to the amount of fresh, local food donated by farmers in the state.
