There is still a food scarcity problem and the food bank says that people should not hesitate to ask for help. “Right now we’re seeing 1-in-4 children and 1-in-6 overall who are experiencing hunger in New Mexico so just for people who are able to give time, food, or funds we greatly encourage it,” said Faith Schifani, a Roadrunner Food Bank employee.
