Mission Statement

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.
