(KRQE) – Around 70,000 New Mexicans will be able to put food on the table tanks to donations from their neighbors.
The Stamp Out Hunger food drive ran this month nationwide and ended Saturday.
New Mexican’s were asked to leave donations at their mail boxes for mail carriers to pick up. Those donations now go tot the Roadrunner Food Bank.
Organizers say the collections give them a boost.
“Our goal is to capture as much food as we possibly can, because this food sustains us through the times, which is summer, where we don’t get as much food. So this is critical to our operation.” said, Julie Anderson.
Organizers say while the collection is technically over, you can still drop off cans off food at your local post office until next Saturday.
