Albertsons Market & Kellogg’s present Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque with a check for $16,000

  • ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — On Thursday, Albertsons Market and Kellogg’s joined forces to donate $16,000 to Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque.

    As part of the Nourishing Neighbors initiative and the Feed the Love campaign, this donation will go to help Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque continue their mission of providing thousands of meals to New Mexicans throughout 2023.

    “We are blessed to be able to help our community through this amazing partnership with Kellogg’s,” said Travis Chaney, RVP for Albertsons Market. “The work that Meals on Wheels does for this community is so important, and we hope these funds will support their mission of helping community members who are at risk of being hungry.”

    Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque started from humble beginnings in 1972 serving just 20 clients with a team of 40 volunteers. As the only home-delivered meal program in the area, the organization has grown to serve more than 140,000 meals to 500 clients with the help of more than 400 volunteers.

    “We are thrilled to partner with Albertsons Market and Kellogg’s to provide healthy meals and friendship to over 2,000 New Mexicans throughout 2023,” said Renee Ruybal, chief advancement officer for Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque. “Their support will help propel our Million Meals Campaign, where we will serve over one million meals to community members in need from 2023-2027.”
