FOOD DEPOT NEWS RELEASE
Due to the possible Cerro Pelado Fire evacuation orders in Los Alamos County, The Food Depot will have a refrigerated truck from noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10, at Los Alamos High School parking lot, 1300 Diamond Dr.
Area residents who wish to donate food and household items – including perishable items – can do so at this time.
All items must be unopened, labeled and in their original packaging. Perishable items must be frozen or refrigerated. Household items must be unopened.
This event is subject to be canceled depending on evacuation orders. Please follow The Food Depot’s social media channels for any updates and changes in schedule.
The Calf Canyon/Hermit’s Peak Fire and the Cerro Pelado Fire are only minimally contained and weather conditions over the next several days are not favorable. The Food Depot is preparing to support the needs of a larger volume of evacuees should more towns be evacuated. We need your support.
