Community Partners

These are some of the organizations that the NMAC has had present to our membership and with whom we have been working.

Roadrunner Food Bank of New Mexico has been serving New Mexico’s hungry since 1980 and are leaders in creating solutions to end hunger in New Mexico.
As the largest Food Bank in the state, we distribute more than 30 million pounds every year to a network of hundreds of partner agencies and four regional food banks. In turn, these agencies provide food directly to the hungry in our communities across the state. Agencies we serve include food pantries, shelters, group homes, soup kitchens, low-income senior housing sites, and regional food banks. 

Blue Cross Blue Shield Care Van program was implemented in January 2006 to help improve health outcomes for all New Mexicans. The Care Van is a 30-foot mobile health clinic that travels statewide.
