    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – If you can’t beat them, join them. A New Mexico woman is on a mission to change the quality of food being sold at national Dollar General chains and her efforts will benefit local families and farmers.

    There is no actual claim in the article that Garza's locally grown produce is organic. Let's hope selling her locally grown produce to/at $General is at least a step in the right direction and opens the door to more locally grown organic marketing at other $stores.

    Well, it was/is a nice thought, but some jurisdictions want to outlaw dollar stores for the very reason that they are selling nothing but junk food in their grocery sections. https://ilsr.org/more-cities-pass-la...-store-chains/
