ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The Roadrunner Food Bank needs help sorting through a mountain of donations.

Saturday’s “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive” brought in 158,280 pounds of food.

“It is truly an honor to receive this gift of food from our community. We are moved by the community’s generosity and involvement in our mission. Thank you for being our partner in making a difference in our state. To our friends with the National Association of Letter Carriers and United States Postal Service, what a phenomenal job you did on behalf of people struggling to put food on the table. Your hard work is inspiring!” said President and CEO of Roadrunner Food Bank Mag Strittmatter.

Organizers say anyone who wants to help sort through items — or donate even more food — can find details on their website.

The annual food drive was canceled the past two years due to the pandemic.
