Feed New Mexico Kids

Feed New Mexico Kids was recognized as a community partner that provided necessary support to APS students, families and communities who face food insecurity.

Feed New Mexico Kids has been partnering with the district since 2017. In that short time they have provided 212 tons of weekend snack packs to APS students. During the pandemic, Feed New Mexico Kids were collaborative problem solvers and continued to support APS students with no gaps in service. They found food when the store shelves were empty and even added handwritten notes of hope and encouragement to the snack packs. They support more than 42 APS schools totaling around 86,222 snacks packs this past year. They also support an annual Thanksgiving meal distribution. Last year, 2,000 APS students received a pre-cooked, family-size Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you, Feed New Mexico Kids, for your partnership!
