Promoting Plant-Based Eating
Animal Protection of New Mexico is committed to increasing plant-based eating in New Mexico through a variety of strategies. We are working to make plant-based foods more available and accessible to New Mexicans by engaging restaurants, cafeterias, entertainment venues, and grocery stores to add plant-based options to their offerings. We are also planning community outreach and education initiatives about plant-based eating and nutrition including cooking classes and demonstrations, continuing education classes, and other community events.
