Open Hours:Monday - Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM
Where is The Food Depot?The Food Depot is located at 1222 A Siler Road in Santa Fe. Our warehouse is directly behind Kitchen Angels. Our front door/lobby is located in the middle of the gravel parking lot. You will see a "Donate Here" sign above the doors. Ring the doorbell, and a volunteer will help you with your donation.

Thank you for helping The Food Depot provide food for families across Northern New Mexico! 

What items should I avoid donating? 
We can not distribute food that has been opened, food that is homemade, or food that does not include an ingredient list. Food must be sealed and include an ingredient list to uphold our food safety standards. We also prefer boxed or canned items over glass items.

When can I donate food? 
The Food Depot warehouse is open Monday-Friday, 8 AM to 5PM.

Will I receive a receipt?
Yes, volunteers or staff are available during open hours to help you weigh your donation and fill out a receipt.

What are your most requested items?
These items are needed most by our clients and partner agencies:

  • canned fruit (light or sugar free syrup)
  • individually-wrapped healthy snacks or bars
  • ready-made or easy-to-prepare meals
  • canned protein

If possible, we always love to receive pop-top cans. We prefer canned items over glass.

What else can I donate besides food?
The Food Depot also distributes diapers for children, wipes, baby food, pet food (dog and cat), and personal care products (toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, etc.)

When and where will my food be donated?
The Food Depot serves nine counties in Northern New Mexico. Food donations are sorted by our volunteers and then ordered by our nonprofit partners. Your food donations may be delivered to a shelter in Santa Fe, a school in Las Vegas, or a church in Raton.
