The New Mexico Food & Agriculture Policy Council and Farm to Table are proud and honored to work alongside many state agencies and community organizations to seed and grow food and farm initiatives that benefit from advocacy and collaboration. It has taken years, with many working together to build relationships with communities and policymakers to increase healthy food access for children, families, and seniors while creating and expanding business opportunities for New Mexico’s farmers, ranchers and food businesses.
