Hope Farms

Enjoy this look into our work at Hope Farms, used with permission of UnitedHealthcare Services, Inc.

We realize that we can't stop at teaching kids to reach for the healthier option; we must also help parents and caregivers provide it. We are working in Houston to establish a robust urban farm and local produce distribution system to ensure that tasty, affordable, fresh food choices are available to everyone.

Thanks to a generous seed grant from Wells Fargo Foundation and support from UnitedHealth Foundation and many others we have built the Hope Farms Showcase and Training Center in the heart of Houston's historic Sunnyside neighborhood. An 7-acre urban farm in view of downtown skyscrapers, Hope Farms teaches, empowers and inspires healthy eating.

Using organic methods to generate significant crops in the midst of one of the city's largest food deserts, we train U.S. military veterans to become new urban farmers, provide jobs and internships for neighborhood youth, and cooking and gardening classes for all ages. You can visit our farm stand on Saturday mornings to buy our freshly harvested produce, eggs and honey, or subscribe to Hope Farm Shares and have it delivered weekly to their door.
