Advocacy in New Mexico

Sharing your support of hunger-relief issues with our federal and state elected representatives may be the difference during an important legislative vote. Make your opinion known through advocacy efforts in the community. Our New Mexico Food Bank has put together a few resources to point you in the right direction.

Advocacy on a National Level

If you are seeking information about upcoming hunger-relief legislation at the federal level, we recommend you connect with our national hunger organization, Feeding America. Feeding America works on a national level on behalf of member food banks and hunger relief programs. Visit their website for regular updates about federal legislation related to hunger relief programs.

If you would like information about Roadrunner Food Bank‘s role in hunger relief visit our Hungry People in New Mexico section, view and share our latest Report of Service the Food Bank provides to the community, or contact us about being involved in our advocacy activities.

You can be a part of solving hunger together by contacting our New Mexico Congressional delegation. They have the power to change laws and to enact policies that could help people in need all over New Mexico. Let your voice be heard and advocate for hunger relief by contacting:
