PUBLIC NOTICE: The Chama Valley Food Pantry is out of food.
Upon calling our primary supplier, Echo Food Bank in Farmington, we were
notified that they did not have what we needed. As a result, we will not be
having a distribution on Saturday, December 3rd. We will be taking steps to
prevent this from happening in the future. And we have some food drives coming
up that should stock our shelves. For the past 4 to 5 distributions, we have
given out record amounts of food. In one of the distributions, we had to close
the doors early because we ran out of food. Living in one of the poorest
counties in the nation and being the only food bank/pantry in the county has
strained our ability to meet the needs. We made a commitment to improve our
boxes to give greater quantities of quality, healthy foods. But the needs of our
communities have overwhelmed our ability to keep up. While our parent banks
(Roadrunner Food Bank and ECHO Food Bank) have celebrated great gifts and
supply, that bounty has failed to reach Chama Valley. We will be contacting
these suppliers and have discussions as to why Chama Valley is struggling.
