Drive-thru Senior Food Markets Coming to Bernalillo County Community Centers

06/03/2020

Silver Horizon’s Senior Drive-Thru Food Markets will offer free groceries for seniors 60-plus at Bernalillo County community centers throughout the month of June.

“Drive up, pick up, stay in your car and stay safe,” says Silver Horizon’s executive director Ron Hidalgo. Hidalgo adds, “Too many low-income seniors are struggling to have enough basic foods to eat. Too many seniors are skipping meals and suffering in silence. Silver Horizons hopes these drive-up/pick-up opportunities provide basic grocery items, keep seniors safe, and help with their quality of life during these difficult times."

The drive-thru pantry hours are from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the following dates at designated community centers:

· Thursday, June 11- Raymond G. Sanchez Community Center, 9800 4th St NW

· Thursday, June 18 - South Valley Multipurpose Center 2008 Larrazolo Rd SW

· Wednesday, June 24 - Rio Bravo Senior Center, 3910 Isleta Blvd SW

· Thursday, June 25 - Los Padillas Community Center, 2117 Los Padillas Rd SW

Due to a state public health emergency order to minimize the risk of spreading coronavirus (COVID-19), seniors picking up food are asked to wear a mask, stay in line and remain in their vehicles at all times, and not show up before 9:30 a.m.

All staff will be wearing a mask, as well as gloves for additional safety. Workers will put the food into the seniors’ vehicles. There will only be one way in and out of the event.

For more information, contact the Bernalillo County Community Services Office at 505-468-7650.
