Food Assistance for Students

Food assistance is now available for current CNM students.

CNM is pleased to announce that through generous community funding, we are able to offer food assistance in the form of either a hand-selected food box or gift card to a major food retailer. Boxes or gift cards will be awarded randomly to students who apply for a weekly drawing.

Eligibility Requirements

  • You must be enrolled in at least 3 credit hours for Summer or Fall 2020, or be enrolled in a non-credit program at CNM.
  • CNM must be your home school if a consortium agreement is in place.
  • To remain eligible, you will need to reapply each week.

Food Box vs. Gift Card

  • You can pick a hand-selected food box that will be picked up in person between 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. from a downtown Albuquerque location.
  • Or, you can pick a $30 gift card to a major food retailer that will be emailed to you.
  • We have equal numbers of food boxes and gift cards. If you are selected for the week, we will do our best to provide your preference related to food box or gift card. 


Students will be selected on Monday of each week. Students will be notified by text and/or email on Tuesday if they have been selected.
