Food is Free Albuquerque – Free fresh produce grown locally
The Rio Grande Food Project provides low-income households with emergency groceries, connects clients to partner resources and services addressing the causes and effects of hunger and food insecurity, and reduces local food waste by rescuing safe, edible food from local grocery stores for immediate distribution
Storehouse New Mexico 505-842-6491 is a community resource fighting hunger. We offer FREE food to people who need it regardless of their income. Many families fall in a gap we refer to as the ‘working poor’. They earn too much to get SNAP (formerly food stamps), but a major car repair, medical bill, or reduced hours at work can have them wondering where their next meal might come from.
MoGro is a nonprofit mobile grocery project committed to providing healthy food that people can depend on. We offer bags of fresh, mostly local, fruits, veggies and grocery items each week that are available for pickup at locations in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Pecos & Espanola. In response to the increased needs presented by the pandemic, we are also providing bags to tribal communities, refugee families and others in need.
