East Mountain Food Pantry
Our Mission:

Our mission is to defeat hunger and define hope.

The East Mountain Food Pantry provides for the hunger needs of families living in the East Mountains of Albuquerque.


The East Mountain Food Pantry’s mission is to DEFEAT HUNGER AND DEFINE HOPE. 


Hunger can be found where you least expect it.  There are over 600 families throughout the East Mountains requesting our help each year; families who must make decisions on whether to pay rent or eat for a few days. Families with low-wage workers, children, seniors on fixed incomes, people with health issues, grandparents raising grandchildren.  The number of families needing help continues to rise. 


Having outgrown the small building graciously provided to us by the First Baptist Church since 1989, we recently purchased a larger building, thanks to an anonymous benefactor’s generous donation.  We look forward to the opportunities this gives us to better serve our community. 

Through your generous donations and our partnership with Road Runner Food Bank we can DEFEAT HUNGER AND DEFINE HOPE in the East Mountains.

East Mountain Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and equal opportunity provider.


How to help

The East Mountain Food Pantry relies on your donations of cash, food, and personal care products.  Bring your donations to the pantry during our normal hours of operation.

Donate Food

We are always in need of fresh (can be from your garden), frozen, canned, dried, boxed, or packaged food items. 


We are usually running low on staples like peanut butter, jelly, rice or beans, pasta, spaghetti sauce, Mac & cheese, soup, crackers, dried/canned milk, and cereal.


Donate Personal Care Products

We are always in need of Baby and Senior items like baby food, formula, diapers, baby wipes, ointment, Ensure, and Depends.

Household products like toilet paper, laundry or dish detergent, disinfectant wipes, razors, toothbrushes and toothpaste are always appreciated. 


We also need empty medium-size boxes and grocery bags in which to put items for our clients.

Donate Pet Food

Pet items like dog and cat food are especially helpful to our clients. We cannot break down large bags of food.  We find 5-10 pound bags are most beneficial.  We also accept canned food for dogs and cats.


Original Location, Since 1989

New Location April 19, 2019

We Needed More Space!

We had outgrown our current space, and have moved to our new facility (April 19, 2019).  Thanks to an anonymous donor, we purchased a new building!  We have relocated our pantry from the small parsonage at the First Baptist Church in Tijeras, to a larger facility, near Sedillo hill, between Tijeras and Edgewood on NM-333
