New Mexico Association of Food Banks

We distribute food through a statewide network of more than 600 agencies (soup kitchens, food pantries, homeless and domestic violence shelters, senior centers, etc.). Find out more here.
According to their website, General Mills’ Mission is “making lives healthier, easier, and richer”. As one of the world’s largest food companies, they also started a blog, called “Taste of General Mills”, which highlights the company’s efforts at health and sustainability.
In 2012, the company donated 23 pallets of food from an overturned truck near Gallup which would otherwise have been destroyed. This donation helped the Community Pantry to add 10 pounds per person served during the month of November.
