COVID-19 has hit the world hard. People are losing their jobs or taking salary cuts, and for many, that means food insecurity: Not knowing where your next meal is coming from, for starters, then stressing about how far the random items in your fridge might stretch.  

New Mexico is certainly not exempt from that, being one of the poorest states in the country, where food insecurity is a major problem during normal times. 

But in true New Mexico  style, people are joining together to help out the community here. Robert Egger, the food security adviser to Santa Fe  Mayor Alan Webber, helped partner up the Santa Fe Community College Culinary Arts Program, World Central Kitchen, and a bunch of other distributors and nonprofits to start making two to three thousand to-go meals per day for people in Northern New Mexico.
