Sandoval County food pantries.

There are several food pantries in the greater Sandoval County area. Many of them are run by non-profits. They will also have very limited hours and resources available, but anyone that meets income requirements can turn to them. The food assistance is also offered for immigrants and non-English speakers in the Bernalillo as well as Rio Rancho area.

Some food bank locations, such as Storehouse West, offer other support as well. Depending on the applicant's circumstances, this may range from clothing for children to vouchers to use at a grocery store. While more limited, there can also be referrals to financial aid. However that type of support is even more limited, and the focus will also be on providing food or a hot meal.
