New Mexico Grown Approved Supplier Program
If you are a New Mexico grower interested in selling your locally grown food to New Mexico schools, senior centers or early childhood sites, consider becoming an Approved Supplier.
Deadlines for the fiscal year 22-23 (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023) are:
- March 1, 2022: Vendors who submit their application by March 1, 2022, will be approved for sales to schools and other institutions by May 1, 2022.
- Rolling approval is available on a case-by-case basis. Approval may take up to 45 days.
Returning vendors — those who have sold to institutions through the NM Grown Program in the past two years — are required to submit a Returning Vendor Survey for fiscal year 22-23 (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023). Read more about the new process here.
Food hubs and new vendors are required to submit an Approved Supplier Program Application for fiscal year 22-23 (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023). These applications (Food Hub Application, New Vendor Application) include the following requirements:
- Proof of food safety training attendance
- Uploading a Farm Risk Assessment (English version, Spanish version)
- Supporting documents (Farm/Hub Map, SOPs, etc.)
