Building a well-nourished New Mexico
The New Mexico Association of Food Banks was formed in 2000 to support the member food banks around the state and administer state-wide programs and contracts. Our mission is to enhance the capacity of New Mexico’s food banks in order to build a well-nourished New Mexico.
The Association oversees two main programs, The Emergency Food Assistance Program and The Fresh Produce Initiative. Through those programs, we provide millions of pounds of fresh produce and commodity food items every year to the thousands of New Mexicans who seek emergency food assistance each week.
