The NM Grown program is an extremely valuable market opportunity for growers that increases access to local food for all New Mexicans participating in state-supported nutrition programs. This annual event is designed to help growers build relationships with regional buyers from schools, senior centers, early childhood sites, and food banks. During the meeting, we will provide required annual food safety training for producers, purchase tips for buyers, review updated vendor requirements, dig into allowable products for the upcoming fiscal year, and answer common questions from buyers and producers.
You will learn:
- Best practices for growing good purchasing relationships
- Tips for getting started with the New Mexico Grown program
- How to work with food hubs and producers to source local products
- How to meet institutional market requirements
