We are looking for individuals who believe in the importance of fresh, healthy food on the plates of their students, and walk their talk by purchasing local food (though state appropriated monies and/or out of own budget) as much as possible throughout the school year. We are also looking for nominees that go beyond purchasing New Mexico grown food and have found ways to integrate education about New Mexico agriculture and nutrition into their programs.
This nomination survey will close on Friday, October 6th at 5:00 PM MST!
Once all nominations are received, a review committee from the New Mexico Food & Agriculture Policy Council will select the awardee. The awardee will be honored at the 2018 Food and Farms Day and School Nutrition Day by the NMSNA President, Shelley Montgomery.
For questions, please contact Kendal Chavez, Farm to Table Farm to School Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
