Hunger is a real problem in our state. Every single week families, students, seniors and many more are struggling to have enough food. Food insecurity was high in NM before the pandemic—one of the worst in the nation, and we have still not returned to pre-pandemic levels.

Once again this year, KOB 4 is partnering with Roadrunner Food Bank to help families across NM.
