We are advocates of localism…
Delicious New Mexico is a statewide organization with a mission of supporting the growth of our food economy. We provide a broad range of business and education services to small food companies with the goal of creating new jobs, advocating access to healthy food, and keeping wealth within the state. Delicious New Mexico is fiscally sponsored by the Rio Grande CDC, a non-profit organization that provides support to organizations in the areas of economic development.
Across North America, tens of thousands of individuals are supporting their local food businesses and in turn helping build stronger local economies.
