More and more of Albuquerque’s working poor are struggling to feed themselves and their families. Money is tight for everyone, but one illness, a reduction of work hours, or any set-back can leave a family wondering where their next meal is coming from.
We provide FREE food to people who are struggling, regardless of race or faith.
We are in constant need of donations of money and food. We have no constant source of income. We rely entirely on donations and volunteers in this mission.
We are a private pantry, not a government agency. Changes in food supply result in changes in food service.
