An Internet search for “Hunger in New Mexico” produced 607,000 sites on 63 pages via Google. The sites discuss the increasing numbers of and circumstances of people in the state suffering from food insecurity. Every week, 40,000 New Mexicans seek food assistance (www.nmfoodbanks.org). Forty percent of these are children under 18 years old.
The sites also tell of the valiant efforts across the state to address the issue. Yet we have not won this fight to end hunger.
