Every New Mexican should have access to healthy foods.
SB 229, the Healthy Food Financing Act, would provide loans and grants to small food businesses to increase access to local, healthy foods in both rural and urban areas of our state. The bill will bring federal money into New Mexico for economic development and investment in community-led solutions to hunger, while supporting local farmers and improving health outcomes for New Mexico’s families.
We need your help to get the Healthy Food Financing Heard! The Healthy Food Financing Act still needs to pass the House floor to make it to the Governor’s desk. Please contact House leadership TODAY to urge them to hear and pass SB 229.
