Issues: Food

Location: 2645 Baylor Se Albuquerque NM 87106 USA

Mission: Roadrunner Food Bank, founded in 1980, exists because hunger is a large and growing problem in the state of New Mexico. Because of very high poverty, New Mexico leads the nation in the percentage of people who must sometimes wonder where their next meal will come from. Each year Roadrunner Food Bank and its affiliated regional food banks in Clovis, Farmington, Gallup, Roswell and Santa Fe distribute food through a statewide network of more than 600 pantries, shelters, group homes, soup kitchens and other agencies involved in feeding hungry people. These agencies provide food to 175,000 New Mexicans each year. In addition, Roadrunner Food Bank collaborates with many other public and private organizations to address the root causes of hunger and to advocate for hungry New Mexicans.

I have volunteered my time to help the Roadrunner foodbank of NM on several occassions. I have thourougly enjoyed my time and feel it was time well spent. My favorite event was the boxing Olympics. This event is very competitive. Several organizations and corporations bring teams of 6 to compete against other organizations and corporations. We have to fill boxes as fast as we can. Each box has to have a specific amount in each. As the boxes are filled and taped, they are now ready to ship out to Senior Citizens. This helps Roadrunner food bank fill the boxes with volunteers while having a wonderful time! My group has won the Silever and Bronze medal for the event. What a wonderful organization this is.

Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque, New Mexico plays a unique role in food distribution throughout New Mexico. They are not a faith-based organization but they often work with churches, etc. They are really cooperative and gather food from every imaginable source. They supply smaller groups and also give to people in need directly. I am impressed by their communication with the public and their openness to listen to new ideas and needs. RRFB also works with school groups and other groups to pack boxes with food. It is a very educational experience, especially when the participants realize the great need in New Mexico.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

volunteering at the food bank, collecting food, sorting etc.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to get the word out about them
