About The Food Depot:
The Food Depot provides food to 120 non-profit food programs in Northern New Mexico. For the 60 food programs outside of Santa Fe County, The Food Depot provides free deliveries, eliminating the need for people from these programs to travel to Santa Fe for their food supply. With the high cost of fuel, this program is making an even greater impact on resources for partner food programs in the food bank’s hunger-relief network. The Food Depot estimates a cost savings of nearly $283,396.20 annually to food programs in Northern New Mexico.
The Food Depot provided food for nearly 5 million meals throughout 9 counties in Northern New Mexico last year. Hunger is growing in New Mexico, and The Food Depot plans to grow as well by undertaking the Building Hope Project. A new Food Distribution and Education Center is being built to address the growing hunger need. The new facility will enable The Food Depot to provide enough food for 10 million meals, year after year.
