  • Program Overview:
    Roadrunner Food Bank is the largest food bank in New Mexico and works to reduce hunger and food insecurity across the state. As a member of Feeding America, the food bank focuses on “Feeding the Family” and designs its programs with the goal of reaching more families in the communities it serves. The food bank distributes approximately 32 million pounds of food each year to families in New Mexico. Thanks to its innovative Mobile Food Pantry, nearly one-third of those total pounds is fresh produce. The food bank's work with community organizations, leaders, and members helps increase food access in rural New Mexico in an efficient and effective way.
