When organizations like Rio Grande Food Project, Food is Free Albuquerque and ABQ Mutual Aid work together, MORE food gets distributed throughout our commUNITY, like these beautiful cold-weather plants that were distributed to RGFP clients and even some planted in our Urban Garden. Together our 3 nonprofits have distributed over 500k pounds of food in 2021.
Donate on #GivingTuesday or start early on #GivingMonday, where your support will have 3x the impact since all proceeds will be shared among our 3 non-profits working to reduce hunger, sharing the bounty of food available with those who need it the most.
Visit bit.ly/FIFABQUnity for all info and to donate. Thank you!
#BetterTogether #CommUNITY #thankyouverymuch
