WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, July 6, and Wednesday, July 7, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will travel to New Mexico to discuss the Biden Administration’s plans to ensure access to healthy and nutritious food in all communities and make historic investments in our country’s infrastructure.
Today, Secretary Vilsack will join U.S. Rep. Teresa Leger Fernández for a tour of a food distribution center in Rio Rancho. There, they will discuss the Biden Administration’s commitment to promoting nutrition security and how the American Families Plan will help achieve this goal.
Wednesday, Secretary Vilsack and Rep. Leger Fernández will travel to the Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo in Española, where they will tour a water treatment facility.
