SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – In Santa Fe, locals were able to get some holiday support. The Santa Fe Place Mall hosted the Food Depot with cars lining up early Saturday morning.

Food Depot Executive Director Sherry Hooper said the distribution assisted many households. “Today we are anticipating more than 1,000 cars coming through our drive-thru for distribution. We anticipate that is nearly, probably 1,500 households and nearly 5,000 people will be helped through this distribution today,” said Hooper. The Food Depot says they have seen a 31% increase in people asking for help and would like to encourage everyone to give.

Correction: A previous version of this story stated 5,000 volunteers helped out which is incorrect. The Food Depot anticipates that nearly 5,000 people were helped through the distribution.
