Storehouse NM

Storehouse NM We provide FREE food to people who are struggling. Our customers select their own food once a calendar month. We comply with the USDA non-discrimination policy, find it at: https://www.storehousenm.org/

We are New Mexico’s largest food pantry. More and more of Albuquerque’s working poor are struggling to feed themselves and their families. Money is tight for everyone, but one illness, a reduction of work hours, or any setback can leave a family wondering where their next meal is coming from. We are in constant need of donations of money and food. We rely entirely on donations and volunteers in our mission.

De-stressing and down time is so important amidst the unprecedented work that the pandemic has created. The Storehouse team took an hour or so recently to tie dye some of their worn shirts as a team building activity.
The Storehouse operations team comes through the door with humor and smarts, and gets the job done without complaint. They have faced challenging circumstances this year and so many new faces at the pantry with courage and tenacity. They deserved a little down time for self care. Thank you to our entire team for picking up food donations, touring donors, packing so many food boxes this year, cleaning and sanitizing so many times, and making sure our community has food. We are so glad to have such caring, capable people.💛

It's been fun finding and writing food puns, and we've thought it was especially important to keep smiling and laughing wherever we could this year. Thank you for your support and know we are "toasting" you as we look forward to 2021. Cheers to a safe and happy New Year. ❤️ the Storehouse family

Food is such a big part of gathering a family to celebrate the holidays. The Storehouse family is wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas, and thinking of all the donors and volunteers that have supported our work this year, including so many faith communities. Thanks to you, so many more people have healthy food on their tables today. Merry Christmas and may the blessings you have shared with the world return to you in happy and surprising ways. https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/christmas-tree-vegetable-platter/652abef8-2f37-4200-8dc6-c38a4350ba96?

Look at this beautiful and tasty holiday charcuterie board! This would make the perfect Christmas holiday lunch for kids or for the whole family, and it'd be easy to pull off, too. You could add fruits and vegetables for healthier options. Let's face it, this year we need all the holiday cheer we can get. Bon appetit!

Have you tried Bell's Brewery Bright White Winter Ale? While there may not be snow on the ground, you can still warm up around the fire with a White Winter Ale.

Cheers and happy holidays! ❄️⛄

Sometimes a kind note can make a world of difference, especially right now, when so many are out of work and turning to the food pantry. That's why the students from Bosque School made these sweet notes and cards, which we are including in our food boxes. We hope that, along with the nutritious food, they bring a little cheer this winter, to some people that need it the most. Our thanks go to the students and teachers who made these for us!

If you have food on your table today 🍖🥦🍞🥕, and you're thankful for that, consider paying it forward to a neighbor in need this holiday season. So many New Mexicans have lost their jobs and aren't sure where their next meal is coming from.

When we have a little extra, we can share a little, and that goes a long way for people who are hungry today. Every dollar you give the Storehouse provides 5 meals for families in need. You can give once for the holidays, or considering setting up a recurring donation to help your neighbors get through this tough time that will no doubt continue into 2021.

We are again and again blown away by the ways in which our community steps up to keep the Storehouse going, especially in tough times. Your graciousness and generosity is truly appreciated. From all of us at the Storehouse- thank you! 💛

A friend of the Storehouse, Kassi Nelson, recently cycled 40 miles to raise funds for our food pantry. Her inspirational fundraiser called "Pedal for the Pantry", raised more funds than she expected and will help provide 8,705 meals for hungry New Mexicans this winter.
Thank you Kassi for your creativity and for engaging our community. It was touching to watch you push yourself for the sake of others. This care of our community is unparalleled. 💛

Please help keep our staff, volunteers, and clients safe. EVERYONE who comes to the Storehouse must wear a mask. Already several grocery stores have closed due to cases in New Mexico and one of the major food pantries in Santa Fe too. We want to continue to distribute food, so we need everyone's compliance with mask wearing. Yes, over your nose, too. And please do not come to the pantry if you are feeling sick at all. Thank you!

Sending a big turkey-sized thank you to B&D Industries, Inc. and to Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union. They generously donated turkeys that we were able to give away for Thanksgiving. We are so grateful! The generosity of the Storehouse community is truly heartwarming. You come through to help feed New Mexicans in so many beautiful ways every day. We couldn't do this without you. @SandiaLabCreditUnion

These Latkes Are A Crispy, Golden Brown Chanukah Miracle

Hanukkah begins tomorrow (Dec 10) at sundown. If you’re celebrating, we wish you a very happy Hanukkah! 🔯 The faith community are strong supporters of hunger initiatives and we appreciate these community partners.

Even if you don’t celebrate Hanukkah, you still might enjoy cooking up some of these easy and delicious potato latkes, a traditional Hanukkah dish. It takes only a few ingredients and minutes to cook. It could also be a good educational or cultural activity to try at home with your family. Enjoy!

12/07/2020

Before the pandemic, 1 in 4 children in New Mexico already experienced food insecurity, and with layoffs and job cuts, the situation is becoming even more challenging. A recent study by Feeding America showed that now 1 in 3 children are going hungry and by the end of 2020, another 33,310 children will be food insecure. If you're not familiar with that term, food insecurity means that the family is often wondering when their next meal will be or if there will be a meal. For scale, that increase alone is twice the population of Los Lunas!

This holiday season, if you have the ability, please give to help the children and families who may be going hungry due to this pandemic. Every dollar you give provides 5 meals for a neighbor in need. One time and ongoing gifts are both greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hot dog! Giving Tuesday was amazing this week. We'd like to offer a foot long "Thank You" to our board members and our donors that participated. To be "frank" we couldn't keep feeding hungry people if it wasn't for you. We never "sausage" great people. 😃

Today is National Cookie Day! Now this is a celebration we can all get behind! It's national cookie day?! Lots of folks ask why the Storehouse gives away baked goods like cookies and cakes, when we try to focus on providing healthy foods to local families. Well, we all enjoy a treat now and then, including families in need. Plus, we count on donations and local stores like Albertsons and Sprouts donate these kinds of treats from their bakeries. Of course, we pass them on to our families. Hope you are enjoying a cookie with a warm cup of coffee or cocoa today. We are and we are celebrating the sweetness that comes with great supporters like you. What's your favorite cookie?

Our leader, Swarupa, was featured in Albuquerque The Magazine October sharing a recipe for Green Chile Chicken Soup. In line with our mission, the soup can be made from items at the food pantry, it is inexpensive, and it easy to create for a big group. If you didn't see it, you can still read it and get your hands on this fantastic recipe here. https://issuu.com/genalacross/docs/october_2020

Today is a global day of giving, also known as Giving Tuesday. We are hoping that you’ll consider giving a donation to the Storehouse today to help us feed local people in need.

Did you know we can turn $1 into 5 meals? It’s true. We buy our food at wholesale pricing or below. Today your donation could go twice as far. Our wonderful board members have decided to donate $5,000 dollars of their own money to match the gifts you give to our Giving Tuesday campaign. Please give today so we can maximize those extra donations. When you give $20 they will give $20, too. If you’re giving $100, the Storehouse will end up with $200 thanks to those matching gifts. A $200 donation allows us to purchase 1,000 meals. It’s a great day to give because your gift will be doubled as will the meals we provide. Thank you!

11/26/2020

We like to think this holiday is a reminder that our lives should be full of both thanks and giving. It is important to pause to reflect on the people and circumstances that make our lives easier and happier and to say thanks for each one. In turn, it is important to give back to the world some of the talents or resources we all have to share. It may not seem like much to make some soup for a sick friend or to do some yard work for a neighbor, but they matter. Those activities that benefit our community and other people actually are proven to improve our own spirits, which is especially important in times like this, and each good thing does improve our community. 💛

For our part, the team at the Storehouse wishes to offer our sincere thanks for all of the volunteers and donors who have supported us this year. Each of you made it possible for us to continue to feed people in need, despite all the challenges 2020 put in our path. Your help is truly valued and appreciated. We work hard at fighting hunger each day the pantry is open, and it has been a difficult year. But we are thankful to everyone who helped us along the way and to be part of the solution. We know we will get through this together. Cheers to the holiday. Hope you have a good meal and family or good friends to share it with, even if that’s virtually. Remember we are closed today and tomorrow, so our team members can celebrate too. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

We put out an all-call for volunteers when we realized we didn't have enough help this morning, and these amazing people came through for us! We are so grateful. Thank you to the volunteers from T-Mobile, from Sandia Preparatory School National Honor Society, and to Carlos and his kids who are long-time volunteers for the Storehouse. We couldn't get food into the hands of people who need it without the dedication of people like these. Thank you! 💛

If you’re like us, Thanksgiving is a time we think about all of our blessings. At the Storehouse so many people pitch in to support our mission and we appreciate the donors and volunteers who help us feed hungry families. If you’ve been thinking about joining that effort, December 1 would be a great day to donate. It’s Giving Tuesday, a global day of generosity where people from all over the world give to help worthy causes. This year, our Board of Directors is pitching in to match the donations to our Giving Tuesday campaign, which means your gift could go twice as far. Enjoy your holiday and be sure to share your thanks with those who make your life and your community better. And please save the date for December 1, Giving Tuesday, and plan to give to the Storehouse. Thanks!

Volunteer spotlight: Christine and Brian, married for 23 years, volunteer together at the Storehouse on a consistent basis. Brian gave time through First Congregational Church youth group as a teen. Their favorite part of being here is knowing they are being utilized to make a difference! “There is always time to help” they say, because “they get more back from their time served than they give.” 💛 Love grows.

Thanksgiving is next week and the end of the year will be here before we know it.

If you are blessed to have a meal on your table this Thanksgiving, consider sharing your thanks and paying it forward to families in need. Your support will help other New Mexicans enjoy a full meal this holiday season.

This year has been tough for all of us, as businesses have closed and people have lost their jobs. We know that many of you have already given to the Storehouse. This year, if you can, we're asking you to dig deep to help your neighbors who are going without during this global crisis.

With your help, Storehouse can continue to do what we do best- feed local families. Thank you for all you do!

Can my friend pick up food for me? I am elderly and in poor health. If she can, does she need to bring any proof that I am low income? Thanks.
Would it be possible for my care giver to pick up food for me? Would she need anything to prove I'm low income? I only leave my apartment to go to doctors' appointments, and then I travel by the VA Transport.
