  • HB 207: Food, Hunger and Farm Bill of 2021

    New Mexico First is supporting HB207 because our goal is to advance public policy to alleviate food insecurity, create resilient food systems, and focus support on critical needs as New Mexico moves forward with public policy related to pandemic relief and recovery efforts. To do this, New Mexico First is working with the Food, Hunger, Water, and Agriculture Policy Workgroup is made up of a group of a cross-partisan coalition of policymakers, agricultural producers, ag and food-related businesses, the emergency food sector, people of faith, anti-poverty and anti-hunger advocates, researchers/academics, dietitians and health experts, educators, and public policy advocates. While participants come from many different communities and professions across New Mexico and have many different life experiences, there is a shared belief that working together to address food insecurity and strengthen local food systems will improve the health and nutrition of all New Mexicans.
