Collaboration with Schools
New Mexico State University’s ICAN program’s mission is to inspire New Mexico's limited resource youth and adults to make healthy food and lifestyle choices. Come learn about how ICAN is creating a healthier New Mexico through nutrition education, gardens, and collaborations statewide. Attendees will receive information on various free resources available in their community. It is critical that New Mexico children have enough access to food for overall success and wellbeing. Programs and communities across the state are working together to ensure all needs of children are met persistently. NM Public Education Department will highlight existing food programs that are making impact in the classroom and beyond, as well as encourage new partnerships, promote creative projects, and organize collaborative efforts to combat hunger. Come prepared to share your ideas and successes that can be replicated statewide!
