 Walmart Foundation gave funds to the food bank in New Mexico to ensure everyone has food on their table. 

November 2, 2023

It is one of the largest donations the food bank has received to date. With this donation, the food bank will feed people in Clovis and New Mexico communities. 

The food bank will also be able to host mobile food pantries throughout the new year. The mobile food pantries will be there in the communities of Portales, Clovis, Logan, Melrose, Fort Sumner, and Tucumcari. 

With the donation given by the Walmart Foundation, the food bank will be able to serve 1000 more families along with the 4000 families it has been serving each month in New Mexico. The food bank will ensure that everyone has food to eat. 

After a fire in September led to the temporary closure of the Walmart Supercenter in Clovis, the store, which previously donated about 5,000 pounds of food monthly to the food bank, is now being renovated and plans to reopen.
