On May 31st Nadine Keller spoke to us about nutrition programs for the food insecure. Nadine and her husband, Nick, originally lived in Albuquerque. But Nadine’s father and mother had a 13-acre farm in Polvadera and persuaded Nick and Nadine to come there and farm.
 Before Socorro had a Farmer’s Market, her grandfather used to sell fresh produce on the plaza. So when Nadine and Nick started farming they got involved in Farmer’s Markets. They have been involved in the Socorro Farmer’s Market for the last 18 years.
Fresh produce is especially important for low income individuals for proper nutrition. Nadine explained that there are currently three programs to help the food insecure; Women, Infants and Children (WIC),Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Senior Hunger Initiative (SHI).
