Top Ten Stories of 2021 Part 1 & Food Insecurity Innovation

This week on New Mexico in Focus, we bring back an annual tradition on the show, the countdown of the Top Ten stories of the year. A special Line opinion panel of journalists from across the state offers thoughts and reflections on these defining moments. This week it’s stories #10-#6.

Also this week, host Gene Grant learns about some of the creative ways that people are working to end hunger in New Mexico. According to some research, 1 in 7 New Mexicans don’t know where their next meal will come from. Learn about how necessity is driving innovation, and how you can get involved in the efforts this holiday season.
