Taos Feeds Taos - 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 2015 to join us in helping those in need.
Taos Feeds Taos, a non-profit corporation in its 30th 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 Eighth Annual Food Drive and Benefit show by local band Last to Know will be held at Taos Mesa Brewing on Friday, December 4th. Admission to the show is free with five cans of food or other non-perishable items. Details coming soon.
