Seasonal Sustenance

In this time of giving, please remember to give to those in need. If your family or someone you know is in need, please look into the following resources.

The Food Depot, which serves Northern New Mexico, is hosting a Virtual Food Drive. This will save you a trip to the store, as well as gas. If you need food assistance, they have a list of their partners.

In the Albuquerque area, the Roadrunner Food Bank is hosting a Holiday Food Drive. They also have two Virtual Food Drives, one ongoing and one for the holidays.

The New Mexico Association of Food Banks is a great resource for information about hunger and volunteering throughout the state. They also provide a directory of emergency food providers, searchable by county.

The City of Santa Fe is also hosting its annual Mayor's Food Drive, sponsored by the Community Services Department. Whole Foods is collecting donations, or you can contact Laneia Marie Gallegos at (505)955-6917 or to participate.

If you are in need of state assistance, the New Mexico Human Services Department lists how and where you can get Food Stamps and other support.
