Roadrunner Food Bank of New Mexico has been serving New Mexico’s hungry since 1980 thanks to a vision by founder Reverend Titus Scholl. Reverend Scholl started the organization by distributing food to the hungry out of the trunk of a car.
Thirty years later we and our partners are leaders in creating solutions to end hunger in New Mexico. As the largest Food Bank in the state, we distribute more than 26 million pounds every year to a network of hundreds of partner agencies and four regional food banks. In turn, these agencies provide food directly to the hungry in our communities across the state.
Agencies we serve include food pantries, shelters, group homes, soup kitchens, low-income senior housing sites, and regional food banks. Through that network, we are helping nearly 40,000 different hungry people in our state weekly. That figure is equivalent to feeding a city the size of Farmington every single week.
