Smith’s Brings Hope to the Table
Smith’s, a Kroger family of stores, and customers can get involved in our work right at the register. As part of their Bringing Hope to the Table campaign, cashiers will ask customers to make a $1, $5 or $10 donation at check out. The funds collect during this campaign will allow the Food Bank to convert the funds raised at the register into food. From November 14 – December 31, we encourage you to make a donation at the register while taking care of the food needs for your own family this holiday season.
And if you prefer to donate food items, feel free to leave a non-perishable food donation for the Food Bank right at the store. Look for our red barrels toward the front of the store and simply drop in your food donated food items. If you need a list of food items to donate, visit this link.
Thanks Smith’s Food and Drug stores and customers for helping collect funds and food on behalf of hunger-relief organizations across the nation in November and December.

Donate Your Old Car and Help Feed Others
There’s a brand new way to help feed New Mexicans in need — and at the same time support Roadrunner Food Bank’s mission to solve hunger! Donate your old or used vehicle and turn it into food to feed others in your community.
We accept all types of vehicles as donations: cars, motorcycles, tractors, RVs, trailers – even boats! It doesn’t even matter whether they’re running or not. We’ll take them! Plus, you may qualify for a tax deduction on your vehicle donation.
And donating your vehicle couldn’t be easier. Simply call us at 855-500-7433 or visit us at www.rrfb.org/cars — and we take everything from there.
We’ll arrange a convenient time around your schedule to pick the vehicle up, notify you when your vehicle has been sold, and send you a formal tax receipt letter.
And in the meantime, you can rest assured your generosity has already been put to work to help feed your hungry neighbors.
Turn your old car into food for others!
