Food Security

Every child in New Mexico deserves at least one meal a day! To end child hunger, NMOST has partnered with NM Appleseed to form a 1 Meal a Day Taskforce in Albuquerque, convening community leaders to figure out how to tackle hunger in our community. During our first meetings, we have focused on how to fill gaps during breaks, long weekends and holidays, and provide extra meal sites when many children are without food for several days or weeks. When we get everyone together at the same table, organizations can build on each other’s work and solve problems that previously seemed insurmountable. Community partners attending the taskforce meetings include APS, Presbyterian Medical group, Cuidando Los Niños, YMCA, Boys and Girls Club, City of Albuquerque, Roadrunner Food Bank, and A Light in the Night.

Here's a list of winter break meal sites in the Albuquerque area:
