Through the end of December, Lovelace Health System will match donations to Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque and hopes to donate a total of $33,000 to the nonprofit.

“We are excited to provide this opportunity to double gifts made to the food bank this month,” said Lovelace President and CEO Ron Stern. “Our hope is that it will inspire giving from the community to be a part of solving hunger this winter for tens of thousands of people.”

“Food is a basic need for all of us, but when the most vulnerable in our community don’t have food so many other long-term health issues can arise, especially for at-risk children. Our partnership with the food bank helps ensure they have food the moment it is needed to assist those suffering from hunger,” added Stern.

Every $1 gift to the food bank allows the agency to distribute five meals, said Roadrunner President and CEO Melody Wattenbarger.

“This wonderful opportunity with Lovelace Health System really leverages giving this holiday season. What a better way to end the year knowing your giving has twice the impact this month,” Wattenbarger said.

In 2012, Roadrunner distributed more than 26 million pounds of food, Wattenbarger said.
