Get Help

We’re here to help

The Food Depot wants to help you and your family. As the food bank of northern New Mexico, we can help you find food resources in your area, apply for SNAP (formerly Food Stamps), and offer other types of food assistance and information. But we also do much more. As part of CONNECT, a network of helping organizations linking people to services and resources in our community, we may be able to connect you to assistance for:

– Housing and rent
– Utilities
– Healthcare
– Counseling and emotional support
– Addictions and mental health
– Relationship violence
– And more

There are places to get help in Santa Fe, but it can be hard to know where to go, or to take that first step. We want to help. We promise to listen with compassion, protect your confidentiality, and find you the help we can.
