FOOD DEPOT News:
SANTA FE — As many of our communities are welcoming people who have been displaced by fire, The Food Depot is working with Gov.. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s office to offer pop-up food pantry distributions in affected areas.
The next special food distribution is 2-4 p.m., today, May 18 at Española High School, 1111 El Llano.
The distribution will include groceries and prepared meals. There is no documentation required and there is never a cost for people to receive food. This distribution is a joint effort between the state and local agencies to reach as many people in need as possible.
“The Food Depot continues to provide support where it is needed most for those affected by the devastating fires,” said Sherry Hooper, executive director of The Food Depot. “We are proud to work with multiple partners so that we are feeding as many people as possible.”

*The Food Depot is an Equal Opportunity provider. This distribution is subject to end early if the food runs out.
