Roadrunner Food Bank serves tens of thousands of children in New Mexico through partner agencies and direct service programs each year like the Childhood Hunger Initiative. There are three ways Roadrunner Food Bank serves the Title 1 schools to help with childhood hunger.
School Pantries – Provides each school the opportunity to create a school-based or on site food pantry allowing families to receive help any time it is needed during the school year.
Mobile Pantries– Every month families at participating schools receive a monthly mobile or “traveling” food pantry held at the school’s location. Each family receives about 50 pounds of food including healthy food such as vegetables, fruit, dairy, meat and much more.
Backpacks – Supplements food for children and families in situations where a parent/guardian is unable to pick up food from the school. A small amount of food can be sent home in a backpack with the child to help the family through a short amount of time.
