New Mexico Gleaning & Food Recovery Organizations
Food is Free Albuquerque
In operation since 2014, FIFABQ strives to provide a direct pathway for excess produce to the most food insecure areas of our city. Backyard fruit trees, farm gleaning, and orchards provide an abundant amount of produce that is mindfully distributed to shelters, churches, food banks, and other organizations that feed locals.

Jardin de Milagros
Jarden de Milagros is a small farm on the New Mexico/Texas border which has the ability to produce crops year-round due to the climate. Volunteers are used to plant, care for and harvest the crops, which are then redistributed to those experiencing hunger. In addition to growing crops, the farm also provides a location to educate various groups on agricultural production and food security.
