Thank You, New Mexico Grocers Association!


Thanks to the continuous generosity of the New Mexico Grocers Association, Roadrunner Food Bank can provide tens of thousands of additional meals for our hungry neighbors statewide!

On November 4th, Gene Valdez and other representatives of the New Mexico Grocers Association gave $10,000 raised from this past summer’s New Mexico Grocers Association Golf Tournament.

“We are more than honored to continue working with an organization like Roadrunner,” Gene said, “and especially an organization with such capacity to make a strong impact statewide in solving hunger.”

“To know that we can now make 50,000 additional meals possible for those hungry in our communities statewide is more than exciting,” Roadrunner Chief Development Officer Wally Verdooren shared.

Thank you, New Mexico Grocers Association, for continuing to stand on the side of hungry children, families, veterans, seniors, and those in need across New Mexico!
