KCEC, Guzman Energy ad CoBank partnered up with El Pueblito, United Methodist Church, to aid with the Shared Table Older Adult food program in Taos County. KCEC, Guzman and COBANK are donating financial and volunteer help to provide non-perishable food to 45-50 of our older neighbors and those who are home-bound and receiving in home health care.
Shared Table began in 1994 as an outgrowth of a vision-minded congregation to do more for the community as they saw the need. They distribute food and basic health-care items, plus some school supplies, on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays of every month, all year long. El Pueblito is open to the public from 11:00 – noon in El Prado and also distribute from 2:00 – 3:00 in the Talpa community center. They partner with Taos Presbyterian church to reach a wider number of folks at both the north & south end of town.
Cheri Lyon, Director of Shared Table stated “The Shared Table Food Pantry is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year and it is only through the support of businesses and community members that we are able to meet the needs of the hungry in northern New Mexico. The expansion of the Shared Table program to include a monthly bag of food each month for older adults is being made possible through the efforts of Kit Carson Electric and its business partners along with our active volunteers and local supporters. It is through working together that we can make a difference!”
