WINTERLIFE — November 2013


The essence of winter is a glowing fire, as explored by esteemed writer Stanley Crawford; but it is also spending a day at one of northern New Mexico’s unique ski areas, or shuffling silently through the forests on snowshoes.

Hungry for intelligent conversation? Check out the Lannan Foundation’s literary events. Hungry for a green chile cheeseburger or a Christmas symphony? Long to get away from the crowds? Get away to a yurt for a winter adventure, or take an easy stroll on the terrific local hiking trails. All these details and more are found in this guide to the quality of life we enjoy in the City Different.

Building Hope points out the problems and celebrates the progress The Food Depot is making to help eliminate hunger in its region. Some stories address the scope of the problem and the need for food assistance by the young, the old, the ill and working families that do not earn enough to pay their bills and fill their cupboards. Others explain how food banking works and how The Food Depot’s new building allows the organization to expand its services. There’s a description of the food bank’s major programs — like Food 4 Kids, the mobile food pantry and the infant supply initiative — and a list of the many ways readers can support The Food Depot’s mission. A resource guide to federal, state and county programs, and a list of Northern New Mexico food pantries providing help to the hungry completes the book.
