The Notah Begay III Foundation and coalition of businesses and organizations are hosting “Helping Our Relatives” Drive-thru food distribution for Native American families in Albuquerque on Friday, May 29, at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, 2401 12th St. NW.

This contactless distribution event is part of the NB3 Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund initiative designed to deliver critical resources to Native youth, elders and families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers said in a news release.

There are no financial eligibility requirements for Native families, and free distribution will be on a first-come, first-served basis in the north parking lot of the Cultural Center, according to the release. The event will end when supplies run out.

Participants are expected to remain in their vehicle and open the trunk when near the pickup spot.

Local Native-led businesses and organizations partnering for this event include: AMERIND, American Indian Chamber of Commerce of New Mexico, Americans for Indian Opportunity, Native Leadership Collective of Albuquerque, Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers, Roanhorse Consulting, Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women, Native Health Initiative, Office of Native American Affairs, National Indian Youth Council Inc.
