Bueno Foods, a family-owned company in New Mexico, is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year by offering $7000 in flash grants for books for classrooms. Giving back to the community has always been a core value of the company and literacy and education have been top priorities. “We come from a long line of teachers including our mom, grandmother, and many aunts and uncles and we know how critical educators are to a healthy society,” said Ana Baca, one of four sibling owners of Bueno Foods and an author of children’s books herself.  “We want to celebrate the immense contribution of teachers by helping them to get books into the hands of children and to share the wonderful world of reading with their students!”
