Call to Action: Address Hunger and Food Insecurity in New Mexico

The need for emergency food has hit a real crisis across New Mexico.  Our children are the hungriest in the nation pre-pandemic and the situation is getting desperate for families, food banks, food pantries, and meal programs statewide.  The emergency food providers count on volunteers to achieve their missions.  Most of those volunteers throughout the state are retirees and our elders are at particularly high-risk of illness right now.  Our emergency food programs throughout the state have pantries closing because of lack of volunteers. The food banks and pantries that have remained open are practicing social distancing to keep volunteers, staff, and the community safe as they distribute food to hungry people.  Your support is needed to continue to meet these critical needs.
