ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Eighty-nine percent of hungry households have an annual income of less than $20,000 and 61 percent chose between paying for utilities or buying food.
Now, one local foundation is looking to help those individuals with their annual summit.
The New Mexico Cares Foundation is hosting their 3rd Annual End Hunger Summit that will help to create new initiatives to end hunger.
Community Development Manager, Deloraes Gonzales, and Associate State Director of Communications, Beth Velasquez, with the North Central New Mexico Economic Development District joined KRQE’s This Morning team to discuss the summit. Watch above.
Participants can donate non-perishable foot items for the food trucks, be a sponsor, or even donate items for door prizes and tote bags.
The summit will take place at the Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown on September 27.
