It Takes a (New Mexico) Village

An impressive group of non-governmental organizations, government agencies (local, state and federal) and members of the private sector have come together to address the problem of hunger in New Mexico.  The group has come together under the name The New Mexico Collaboration to End Hunger.  There is wide participation from members of the community and even outside the community.  They have developed a three-year plan to end hunger.
The advocates in the group say action is needed because one in four children and one in eight seniors in New Mexico do not know where they will get their next meal.  This situation is often known as food insecurity.

The group's director, Nancy Pope, writes her own blog about related issues.

Check out Nancy's blog and our blog for updates and other information about the work of the group.
