Houston's 4th platoon is led by Air Force veteran Amariee Collins and we have partnered with Recipe for Success to address childhood obesity and food deserts in the Houston area by focusing on community farming. 4th platoon members will learn how to build gardens and will apply what they have learned in communities that do not have access to fresh produce.
The Mission Continues will focus on the Sunnyside community and help build an urban farm on a 7 acre plot of land. This community has one of the largest food deserts in the city and this farm will provide residents with fresh fruit and vegetables to help combat childhood obesity and other health problems that correlate with food deserts.
Please join us as we strive to decrease food deserts and promote healthy living within the Houston community.
