The New Mexico Food and Agriculture Policy Council invites you to mark your calendars for Friday, November 15.

The NMFAPC, which is supported by Farm to Table, will be presenting information on its "Healthy Kids - Healthy Economy" initiative (also known as New Mexico Grown Produce for School Meals) to the Water and Natural Resources Committee.

The policy council invites any interested people to join them in Room 303 of the Roundhouse at 9:00 A.M. for a  brief introduction to the schedule that morning and to orient everyone to the Legislature and interim hearing process. The actual hearing will take place in Room 307 at 10:00 a.m.

Here is the agenda for November 15 and the list of members of the Water and Natural Resources Committee

The NMFAPC will provide a brief presentation and answer questions from Committee members (likely no more than 25 minutes total). After the hearing, there will be a meeting back in room 303 to debrief and determine next steps in preparation for the 2014 Legislative session, activities, and discuss additional legislative agenda items. There will also be an opportunity to follow up on the rich conversation about local food policy initiatives and how to build them into the policy council's work in  2014.
