MoGro Mobile Grocery is a nonprofit mobile grocery based in Albuquerque. Our main goal is to make nourishing, local food accessible to more families in central New Mexico by removing barriers of distance and cost that can inhibit access to healthy eating.

We help to make healthy food more accessible through two main programs - Access Fresh and Partners in Fresh. Access Fresh is our direct sales program where our members purchase a bag of produce on a sliding scale based on what they can afford ($6 with EBT, $12 or $20). This program is open to everyone regardless of income status. Our members pre-order bags for pick up each week at one of our pickup locations in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Espanola and Pecos.

Our second program, Partners in Fresh, focuses on larger scale distributions with partner organizations like Presbyterian Community Health, Three Sisters Kitchen and Vegan Outreach. We work with these organizations to build bags for communities beyond those that we typically work with. For example, we partner with Vegan Outreach to conduct distributions in Tribal Communities across central and northern New Mexico. We work with Presbyterian Community Health by working closely with health care providers to offer no and low cost access to healthy, produce and other local and traditional foods to families with children experiencing food insecurity.

With large volumes of produce going so many different directions, we first bring it all to Roadrunner Food Bank, where we rent space to pack our bags and store our food, to sort, pack and redistribute. This is where YOU come in! We need help packing our produce and grocery bags for our members and partner organizations. We pack every Tuesday from 2:30 - 6:30 at Roadrunner Food Bank.

Send us an email if you're interested in having a hands-on impact helping make healthy, nourishing food more accessible! Once we answer any questions you might have, we will send you the link to our SignUp page where you can sign up for a future Tuesday night pack! We look forward to hearing from you!
