Chama Valley is an important resource for the citizens
of Chama who depend upon us to provide healthy food for their tables. The
families of Chama and the area have benefited from the hard work of the
all-volunteer staff. We are getting to the point that we need to have our own
truck and trailer to make the twice-monthly food pick ups from Farmington's Echo
Food Bank, part of the Road Runner Food Bank system.
We supply food boxes for 50-70 families twice a month.
Funds will be used to purchase and continued
maintenance for the needed transportation to carry 2 to 4 tons of food, usually
on 3-4 loaded pallets. Farmington is a four hour round trip. Those who have
volunteered their vehicles in the past are getting their vehicles worn out and
availability of volunteer vehicles is getting difficult.
