Anecdotal data indicates that the Las Cruces Pantry for CdP, located in the Community of Hope, can provide serious transportation challenges to seniors: if they are arriving by bus, the stop is nearly two full blocks away from the pantry, a walk which may be difficult for seniors, and can be exacerbated by weather and by carrying groceries.


Working with the City of Las Cruces, CdP launched its first Mobile Food Pantry at the Munson Senior Center in September of 2016 and brought the program to all five centers in December 2016. This venture brings a monthly distribution of nutritious supplemental groceries to eligible seniors in a venue where they have already transportation arranged.


In 2024, this program was modified to a program “Senior Tuesday” based at the Central Pantry drive up, in order to give seniors more options and a better selection of food.
