Thank you so much to all who participated in the 2018 Parade of Playhouses. All to help New Mexico Appleseed make our state a better place for all.
It’s because the child poverty rate in New Mexico is at 30% – the third highest out of all 50 states. It’s because 28.3% of New Mexican families with children report hardship in buying food that they need. And, it’s because New Mexico is ranked among the most difficult states in the nation for families to afford fresh fruits and vegetables that we must all come together, as a community, to help meet the needs of our children in New Mexico.
