Taos Feeds Taos

Taos Feeds Taos - Over 30 years of Feeding Taos Families
Our Taos County is rich in beauty, natural resources, art and culture. For this we give thanks as the holiday season approaches. But many among us are struggling to keep their families together, warm and well-fed. We urge Taos individuals, families and businesses who have been blessed with prosperity in 2019 to join us in helping those in need.

Taos Feeds Taos, a non-profit corporation in its 34th year, will distribute food baskets to over 1100 needy Taos county families during this holiday season. This is only possible with your help. We ask for donations of non-perishable foods and for cash donations to purchase hams, fruits and vegetables. We also ask for volunteers to help fill boxes. Your support is appreciated.

Our 12th Annual Food Drive and Benefit show by local band Last to Know will be held at the Taos Mesa Brewing Mothership on Friday, December 13. Special guests The Foggy Memory Boys. Doors at 7:00. Admission to the show is free with five cans of food or other non-perishable items. Click here for a list of suggested non-perishable food items.
