The Food Depot in Santa Fe is encouraging residents to volunteer at the Santa Fe Community Farm.
The farm helps The Food Depot distribute through 135 partner agencies to people who are hungry. The farm is in need of volunteers willing to plant, weed, compost, and all tasks associated with growing fresh fruits and vegetables.
The Food Depot provides hot food to 135 not-for-profit agencies including emergency food pantries, hot meal programs, homeless shelters, youth programs, senior centers, homes for the mentally disabled and shelters for battered persons. The food bank distributes an average of 300,000 pounds of food and household products each month, providing more than 400,000 meals to people in need - the most vulnerable of our community – children, seniors, working families and those in ill health.
