ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- A growing number of people in New Mexico are fighting to survive during the pandemic.
Roadrunner Food Bank is one of the organizations that is trying to get help to people.
"It used to be that if we did a 500 household mobile food pantry that would be big for us," said Kate Page, SeedCorps program manager at Roadrunner Food Bank. "So, now every single Tuesday, we're doing 750 households and at our bigger distributions, we're hitting anywhere from 1,500 to 2,000 households."
Roadrunner Food Bank welcomes donations. The organization says every dollar provides five meals for families in need.
The food bank reports that one in five people are dealing with food insecurity right now.
"We need all the help we can get, absolutely," Page said. "With this many more people needing us, it's definitely, It's unprecedented the amount of need that we're seeing."
