"A Helping Hand for Placitas” - "Una Mano de Ayuda para Placitas” CLICK HERE TO GIVE
Casa Rosa is an outreach of LPPC in alliance with the broader community of Placitas. Our mission is to provide food, services, and other life needs to empower the people of Placitas. Casa Rosa values people as they are; solicits participation of those who support our mission; respects the beliefs of others with no pressure to participate in LPPC; and encourages suggestions for meeting the needs of the Placitas community. Casa Rosa Food Pantry is an equal opportunity provider.
Immediately east of LPPC at 640 Hwy 165 in the pink house.
Mailing address: Casa Rosa Food Pantry, P. O. Box 768, Placitas, NM 87043.
Food Pantry distribution is from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. every Saturday morning regardless of sun, rain, or snow (with the only exception being in those years when there is a conflict on Saturday with Christmas and New Years Days).
Casa Rosa opened its doors on August 30, 2008, with eight families being served. In this past year, 149 households in Placitas were served, including 222 adults and 80 children for a total of just over 300 individuals.
While an outreach mission of LPPC, Casa Rosa has its own Board of Directors that determines strategic and operational policies and exercises independent responsibility for financial oversight.
Phone: Through the LPPC office at 867-5718
