A Great Way to Help the Hungry!
In Doña Ana County, roughly 25 percent of its people live below poverty level. We can therefore estimate that at least one in four children may sometimes go to bed hungry. In bad agricultural years, that ratio could be closer to one in three.
It is largely those children and their parents who will benefit from your gift of food—as will our homeless clients. On their behalf, and our own, we thank you for your compassion.
Although any item in good condition is welcome, our clients find the following foods and supplies particularly helpful:
- Pinto beans
- Tomato sauce
- Fresh produce
- Canned vegetables, fruits, and soups
- Fresh and dried milk
- Dried pasta
- Baby food
- No-cook food suitable for homeless clients
- Hygiene supplies for homeless clients
- Pet food
Please drop off your donations on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday during business hours. If you have a large donation from a food drive and would like to schedule a pick-up, just give our office a call to make arrangements.
Thank you for providing food to the hungry of Las Cruces and Doña Ana County!
