Feeding Hungry Adults in New Mexico
It could be your brother, your sister, your parents. The face of hunger in New Mexico is always changing, and isn’t always obvious who may need help with basic necessities such as food. Adults are just as in-need as children and senior citizens when it comes to food assistance, and our data tell us that they make up 47% of the people we serve on a daily basis. Help our New Mexico Food Bank bring hunger relief to someone in need.
How to Help
32% of the families that our New Mexico Food Bank provides food assistance to have at least one working person with an average income of $900 a month in the home. Depending on how many dependents they have in their household, they are below or well below the poverty line in New Mexico. You can help these families by:
Making a Charitable Donation
Every charitable donation you make is put to good use. We can distribute five meals with every dollar that is donated. You can make a charitable donation online set up as a one-time or monthly recurring payment through our Roadrunner Club.
Hosting a Food Drive and Fund Drive
Partner with us and host a successful food drive and fund drive. We’ll provide a food drive toolkit with helpful information. We are able to provide large food collection barrels to help your food drive run smoothly and efficiently. And you can set up a fund drive as part of your food drive within your business, with a group of friends, a community-based organization, a church, or a school.
The need for food and resources is great. For every person we help, we are unable to reach two others, but we can continue to meet the growing need for food in our state with your support. Please make a donation today! Contact Roadrunner Food Bank in New Mexico to see how we can help!
