Over 23 million American children today are obese or already on the path to becoming obese adults with life-threatening chronic diseases. Obesity has many causes, but research identifies the major culprit as the food we eat and the way we eat it. The loss of connection with food sources, reluctance to eat fresh fruits and vegetables and reliance on processed fare are some of the key contributors that we work to eliminate.
Recipe for Success Foundation was founded in 2005 to combat childhood obesity by changing the way children understand, appreciate and eat their food and to educate and mobilize the community to provide them with healthier diets. We are transforming lives in Houston and beyond by making healthy food fun, tasty, affordable, easy and accessible.
At Hope Farms, we are implementing our award-winning programs to teach, inspire and empower healthy eating. Our seven-acre site, in the shadow of downtown Houston,is where we grow affordable, fresh produce for Houston families, train new urban farmers and provide a place for the entire community to learn about and celebrate fresh, locally-grown food.
