Why Food Rescue Matters in 2016




“I was laid off at the start of the school year and my boys needed school uniforms.  I had no money to buy food after school supplies.  I have to limit how much we eat and sometimes we have to skip meals. Thank goodness a hunger-relief program started at our school.”

Kathleen, Roadrunner client

Feds Feed Families Across New Mexico!


As our President & CEO Melody Wattenbarger has said time and again, “It takes the whole community to raise healthy families!”

Recently, we marked another chapter in our efforts to sustain community partnerships which not only feed more of our hungry neighbors. Thanks to Feds Feed Families, federal agencies, and their employees across New Mexico, we received more than 46,000 pounds of food this year to nourish more hungry New Mexicans!

Ultimately, we work so that such partnerships build healthy families across New Mexico and solve hunger in communities statewide. Gratefully, with partnerships such as Feds Feed Families with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other agencies, we can raise even more food and meet even more needs!

In terms of sheer volume of food, Feds Feed Families raised more than 14.8 million pounds of food for communities nationwide in 2014 alone. In New Mexico, some of the leading federal agencies and employees who contributed include and are not limited to:
