Food insecurity continues to be a problem New Mexicans face and they say they want to alleviate some of that pressure. “We want to make sure our families have the access to these types of resources, especially now during the holidays and Thanksgiving is one of those times you spend with family, so we want to give them peace of mind,” said Wendy Santiesteban, Marketing and Community Relations.

Western Sky will hold one more event next Saturday at Lynn Middle School in Las Cruces beginning at 10:00 a.m.
