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 experience hunger too and many of them are employed, but do not make enough of an income to survive.
Help our New Mexico Food Bank bring hunger relief to someone in need.
How to Help
In fact, 53% of the households we serve had at least one person employed in the past year. The remaining were either disabled or in poor health, or are seniors living on a very tight fixed income in retirement. The latest Hunger in America report shows that almost 90% of hungry households make less than $20,000 a year and rest report having no income at all. A majority of the hungry homes we help live in poverty 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 Online 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 we encourage you to set up an online 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, but we can continue to meet the growing need for food in our state with your support. Please make a donation today!
