Each day, 70,000 New Mexicans throughout the state experience food insecurity. In addition, to food scarcity, Native American communities that have also been heavily hit by COVID-19 have been impacted more than any other in the state of New Mexico.
Along with the devastation the pandemic has caused, food insecurity has become an even bigger issue for all New Mexicans. The State of New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department, and Human Services Department and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are teaming up to help feed more than 3,000 people in need.
More than 120,000 pounds of food, supplies and other necessities have been donated to those in need. For those experiencing hardship, there is relief available.
Roadrunner Food Bank is another great resource for supporting individuals and families during times of food scarcity.
