“What can you do in 21 days?”

Food DepotWarehouse 21City of Santa Fe

The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Board, in coordination with The Food Depot and Warehouse 21, will be sponsoring a city-wide food drive to take place in all of the high schools in Santa Fe. The food drive will take place between October 1st and October 21st and will challenge people under 21 to see what they can do in 21 days.

The goal of the food drive is to raise food donations as well as to raise awareness among youth about hunger in our community. The food drive will benefit the Food Depot, Santa Fe Public Schools Adelante Program and Youth Shelters.

The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Board has been working with the student governments at the high schools to promote the food drive. Food collection bins will be delivered to all local high schools. The winner of the food drive (determined by the weight of the food collected divided by the number of enrolled students) will receive the ability to host an event at Warehouse 21.

The public may donate through food collection bins at City Hall at 200 Lincoln Ave., and Warehouse 21 at 1614 Paseo De Peralta.
