Policy Council (NMFAPC)
As we approach the 2013 NM Legislative session the NMFAPC is requesting funds for "NM Grown Produce for School Meals." We had a wonderful turnout at the Water and Natural Resources Legislative Interim Committee hearing a couple weeks ago! If this bill passes, more NM students will enjoy NM grown fruits and vegetables, New Mexico's farming economy will prosper, and it will help to augment school nutrition programs.
Read about this hearing in: NMFAPC in the New Mexican!
