Luciente Programs and Projects

Luciente's School Pantry Programs

We are excited to report that we are constructing “Grab-n-Go” food pantries in two area schools: Abiquiu Elementary and the Coronado High School Complex.  


We are heartened to provide much-needed support to these schools.


We so appreciate the support of the superintendents and teachers who are making this possible, and the schools for carving out space for the pantries.  Luciente will outfit the rooms with shelving and refrigerators, and will ensure the pantries are stocked.  

Luciente's COVID-19
Emergency Response project

From March through July 2020, Luciente delivered weekly bags of food staples to 45 families in need in Abiquiu, Canones, Youngsville, Coyote, and Gallina during the COVID-19 crisis. Luciente is now working to establish food pantries at Abiquiu Elementary School and the Coronado School complex in Gallina.

Luciente's volunteer work on the 
El Rito Observatory

The telescope at the NNMC campus in El Rito is a true gem for our community. Luciente and NNMC worked together to refurbish the telescope, and it's now in good working order! Our shared goal is to draw kids and adults alike to experience the wonder of our dark New Mexico skies!
