Improving Health through a Sustainable Food System focuses on the northern zip codes of Pasadena, Texas. The North Pasadena community experiences a higher rate of poverty, lower educational attainment, more linguistic isolation, and higher levels of food insecurity than the surrounding region. It also has the highest level of children who are overweight or obese in Harris County. The Harris County BUILD Health Partnership addressed these issues by launching a complete food system using models, programs, and policies shown by evidence to reduce BMI while also closing the gap in upstream factors of food insecurity.  The partnership’s vision was nutrition equity in North Pasadena, and its mission was to “eliminate the conditions that cause food insecurity in North Pasadena.”
