About New Mexico Grown

New Mexico Grown is a program that works with local farmers, ranchers, and food businesses to connect them to people right here in our state. When local food producers can sell their fruits, vegetables, and meat to preschools, K-12 schools, senior centers, and food banks, it helps communities stay healthy and self-reliant.

NM Grown supports publicly-funded meal programs by highlighting healthy food options and increasing access to fresh locally grown and produced foods for institutional and food bank buyers. The program strengthens purchasing relationships with food producers, creating sustainable market opportunities and healthy communities.

Through this work, we’re able to empower children, older adults, and families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities.
