Neighbor to Neighbor 8th Annual Food Drive

Hunger is a growing crisis in Northern New Mexico. It is often hidden, but it affects one of every five people and one of every four children in our state.

How to Help: Come join the Aldea de Santa Fe HOA Neighborhood and other neighborhood associations for a one day “Neighbor to Neighbor” Food Drive to help end hunger in our community.

What to Do: Fill a bag or two with non-perishable food items. Then bring your bags to Aldea de Santa Fe HOA Community Center by 5 pm on Sunday, September 22nd. All the food we collect will be delivered by Aldea crew to the Food Depot on Monday, September 23rd.
