The Food Depot--Developing Solutions to Create a Hunger-free New Mexico – Hosted by Patty Smith

Wednesday, July 8, 2015
Time: 3-4pm
Location: Food Depot 1222 Siler Road, #B
Members: FREE, Non-Members: $0

The Food Depot addresses the most fundamental need of all people: food.
For those who struggle with hunger, the effects are far-reaching and often difficult to see. Providing an individual who is hungry with food immediately impacts their capacity to be a contributing member of society.

Nate Patrus, volunteer coordinator for the Food Depot, will give us a tour of the Depot, tell us about the range of programs the Depot offers (i.e. Lunch Box Express, Mobile Food Pantry, Food for Kids) and volunteer opportunities that are available.
