How You Can Help
Taos Feeds Taos 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.

Strong backs are needed December 14th through the 20th to help sort donated food and to fill and distribute boxes. All activities will happen at the National Guard Armory on the road to Country Club and UNM Klauer Campus, 1145 State Road 570 in Llano Quemado. Click here to view the tentative volunteer schedule.
