The demand for hunger relief increased by 30% after crisis began. Within the first two weeks of its COVID-19 Response, The Food Depot saw a dramatic increase in demand for hunger relief. That demand has persisted.

The Food Depot, northern New Mexico’s only food bank, has provided hunger relief for 26 years. Due to the sharp increase in food insecurity, The Food Depot is projected to distribute over 10 million pounds of food in 2020 — 8.6 million meals. Current data shows a 66% increase in food distribution over the same time period in the previous year.

For every $1 you donate, The Food Depot will provide 4 meals to hungry families in northern New Mexico. We deeply appreciate support from everyone at Meow Wolf.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code” _builder_version=”4.5.3″ _module_preset=”default”][/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
