Our Mission and Values
St. Felix Pantry is a nonprofit charitable organization incorporated in 1992. For well over twenty years, the Pantry has been a safety net for people struggling to support their families in times of crisis. We provide, free of charge, food, clothing, household items, and referral services. But people served by the Pantry need more than food, clothing, and household items; they need respect for their dignity, compassion for their suffering, hope for their children, and a place that welcomes and empowers them for their journey. These are the real gifts of the Pantry.
The need for these services has grown in relationship to the economic downturn: loss of jobs, rise in food and fuel costs, and recent cutbacks in welfare and healthcare benefits. Annually, the Pantry provides the equivalent of 1,071,452 meals.
We restore hope to families and individuals in need by providing food, clothing and referral services.
The St. Felix Pantry is lovingly sponsored by the Felician Sisters. We envision a future where everyone in New Mexico has access to nutritious food. Our purpose is to develop an efficient and sustainable program in order to provide food and other services to our clients.
