The Food Depot maintains partnerships with over 70 nonprofit agencies in nine counties in Northern New Mexico. These agencies include meal programs, food pantries, youth programs, senior centers and shelters for individuals experiencing homelessness.
A partnership with The Food Depot enables each of these agencies to focus their resources on their primary mission rather than on the acquisition of food. The Food Depot provides an offerings list to each agency on a weekly basis and then prepares each agency’s food order for delivery or pick up. Fresh produce is offered at no charge, and deliveries are always free of charge to partners.
This partnership enables The Food Depot to direct food donations to individuals experiencing food insecurity and alleviates the burden of providing food from nonprofit agencies whose resources are already stretched thin.
Financial support of The Food Depot can also be considered support of over 70 additional nonprofit agencies that serve the community. Current agency partnerships exist in seven Northern New Mexico counties. In counties where there is no partner agency, The Food Depot’s Mobile Food Pantry program fills the gap to provide services.
