NM Collaboration to End Hunger Holds Statewide Community Meetings

The New Mexico Collaboration to End Hunger has scheduled a series of meetings around the state to examine the problem of hunger in several communities.  Specific data on hunger  in New Mexico and in each county will be presented. Group discussions will be held to determine just what's working, what's not working and what would really make a difference in ending hunger.

Participants will be asked to Take the Pledge to make a difference in ending hunger in New Mexico by committing to taking one key action step in their community.   One meeting was already held in Silver City and Grant County on Oct. 14.  It was hosted by the Volunteer Center of Grant County, Healthy Kids Healthy Communities Grant County, and the Silver City Food Co-op.
