According to The New Mexico Association of Food Banks, 9180 citizens in Lea County are consider food insecure and lack the resources to provide food for themselves or their families. At Jefferson St, we help to offset this lack of basic sustenance by providing non perishable food bags
Who We Serve
Many different types of people are given these food bags, such as veterans, seniors, the working poor, homeless and low-income residents, recent immigrants, recent parolees, and the mentally and addictively ill.
How We Serve
Welcoming each guest with dignity and respect is fundamental to the food program. We accept any and all people who come through our doors for food. More guests rely on these meals as their only source of food and many must decide between paying their rent and purchasing medicine before budgeting for food.
