Cultivating healthy food and lifestyles.


We reach out to high-risk populations through education and behavior change support programs. Our mission directly supports the Imagine Brownsville Comprehensive Plan ( formally adopted by the City of Brownsville in 2009 and specifically addresses one of the strategic initiatives in the Plan’s Healthcare section: “Promote affordable fruits and vegetables through community gardens and farmers markets that would also promote education on healthy living.” The mission also aligns with State Health Services to “increase consumption of fruits and vegetables” by bringing fruits and vegetables to more places and people, creating new paths for fruits and vegetables to reach the market, and promoting healthy food choices.
