Our Mission

Our mission is to defeat hunger and define hope.

The East Mountain Food Pantry provides for the hunger needs of families living in the East Mountains of Albuquerque.

Hunger can be found where you least expect it.  There are over 600 families throughout the East Mountains requesting our help each year; families who must make decisions on whether to pay rent or eat for a few days. Families with low-wage workers, children, seniors on fixed incomes, people with health issues, grandparents raising grandchildren.  The number of families needing help continues to rise.

Having outgrown the small building graciously provided to us by the First Baptist Church since 1989, we recently purchased a larger building, thanks to an anonymous benefactor’s generous donation.  We look forward to the opportunities this gives us to better serve our community.
